Toronto Raptors Sign Swingman To Contract

As one of the worst three-point shooting teams in the league, the Toronto Raptors are on the hunt for a perimeter shot-maker. They took a step in that direction today with their first 10-day contract signing of the year.

6'6" wing Joe Wieskamp was a 2nd-round pick of the San Antonio Spurs in the 2021 NBA Draft. He played 29 games for them last season on a two-way, in very limited minutes. He was waived by the Spurs in October before the season opened. 

The 23-year-old has been toiling away in the G League this season, and has posted some nice 3-point shooting numbers there, averaging over 38% on high volume, and 40.6% this season. 

The Raptors have been struggling, losers of seven of their last 10, and now in 12th spot in the East. It's likely that Wieskamp gets a chance to show what he's got.
