Toronto Raptors Sign Former Top 10 Lottery Pick

 The Toronto Raptors have been one of the busiest teams over the past several weeks, but just because the trade deadline is past, it doesn't mean they're finished massaging their roster yet.

Former No. 10 overall selection Justise Winslow (NBA Draft, 2015) has been signed to a 10-day contract by the Dinos.  

The 27-year-old wing, who can play anywhere from off-guard to power forward, got a late start on the 2023-24 season after having ankle surgery last year. He's been with the Raptors G League affiliate for the past couple of months, where he's averaged 16.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, and 1.8 steals in about 27 minutes a night across 17 games. He's also shot 51% from the floor.

Across his seven-year career, Winslow has suited up for the Miami Heat, the Portland Trail Blazers, the Los Angeles Clippers, and the Memphis Grizzlies. In 344 career games, he's averaged about 26 minutes a night along with 8.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 2.6 assists. 

The Raptors had a couple of roster spots open up after they sent Dennis Schroder and Thaddeus Young to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Spencer Dinwiddie, whom they then waived.
