Ryan Hawkins

Raptors Sign, Waive Four Players

The Raptors have signed and waived David Johnson, Reggie Perry, Christian Vital and Ryan Hawkins, tweets Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca. All four players got Exhibit 10 contracts and will be eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if they spend at least 60 days with Raptors 905 in the G League.

Toronto selected Johnson with the 47th pick in the 2021 draft and signed him to a two-way contract last season. He saw minimal playing time in two NBA games, but averaged 11.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 23 G League contests.

Perry played nine games for the Trail Blazers and one with the Pacers last season, all on 10-day contracts.

Vital joined the Raptors for Summer League action, and the team recently acquired his rights in a G League trade. Hawkins also played for Toronto’s Summer League team after going undrafted out of Creighton.
