Raptors Sign Summer League Revelation

With Fred VanVleet providing the inspiration for any undrafted player, his newest teammate will be looking to walk in those same shoes. The Toronto Raptors have signed point guard Jeff Dowtin after an impressive Summer League performance.

The 6'3" Dowtin averaged 16 points and 4.3 assists in about 28 minutes per game in the Las Vegas summer games, while shooting 57% from the field, and 36.4% from three. His 4.3-to-0.5 assist to turnover ratio was stellar.

The numbers echo the dominance he showed in the G League this past year, when, in 22 games, he averaged 20.9 points and 6.6 assists, on 55.6% shooting, including 43.2% from long-range.

Dowtin also played a total of nine NBA games this past season, starting out with the Golden State Warriors, before being waived after four games. He signed 10-day contracts later with first the Milwaukee Bucks, then the Orlando Magic. 

The 25-year-old was signed to the Raptors' second two-way contract for the coming season; Ron Harper Jr. holds the other.
