Toronto Raptors Acquire Free Agent Swingman


The Toronto Raptors continue to make signings 'around the margins' this offseason, inking free agent swingman Svi Mykhailiuk to a 2-year contract. 

The 6'7" guard/forward made some strides in his 3rd season in the league, after being traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder from the Detroit Pistons midseason. He averaged 10.3 PPG in 30 games with the Thunder.

The 23-year-old Mykhailiuk owns a career 36.2% mark from three-point range, with a high of 40% in his second year, 2019-20. Although he struggled from behind the arc this past season, shooting is his biggest asset, with a quick release and great mechanics. 

He'll join in the battle for a spot at the back end of the Raptors' rotation with the likes of forwards Sam Dekker, Ishmail Wainwright, guard Isaac Bonga, 2nd round pick Dalano Banton, and incumbent forward Yuta Watanabe.
