3:54pm: The Raptors have waived Morsell, according to Murphy (Twitter link). They once again have an open spot on their 21-man roster.
Morsell played for the Salt Lake City Stars and Raptors 905 in the G League last season after going undrafted out of Marquette in 2022. In 44 total games for the two teams, he averaged 7.3 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 18.2 minutes per contest, with a shooting line of .393/.220/.750.
While Morsell’s offensive numbers have never jumped off the page, dating back to his college years, he’s a talented perimeter defender who earned Big 10 Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2021 while playing for Maryland.
As Murphy explains, Morsell may be in training camp with Toronto, but appears likely to return to the Raptors 905 once the regular season begins. Assuming he’s cut and then spends at least 60 days with the Raptors’ NBAGL affiliate, he’ll earn an Exhibit 10 bonus that can be worth up to $75K.
