Raptors Sign Rookie To Multi-Year NBA Contract

After watching him post a league-leading 24 points per game, seven rebounds and four assists for the Raptors 905 in the G League, the NBA club has decided to reward 24-year-old guard Javon Freeman-Liberty with a multiyear standard NBA contract. 

Freeman-Liberty played in two games for the Raptors back in January, but only accumulated less than four minutes of total floor time. But his solid play in the developmental he has convinced the Raps to give him a shot by filling the team's 15th roster spot for the rest of the season, and some NBA money (though likely non-guaranteed) for next season as well.

It's been a good week for the G League's leading scorer, as he was also just named its Player of the Week.

His performance for the week included a 35-point night with a career-high 14 rebounds. It was his 5th 30+ point game of the season.

The 6'4" shooting guard went undrafted out of DePaul in 2022 and played with Windy City, his hometown Chicago Bulls' G League affiliate last season. 

The Raptors signed the 24-year-old to a two-way contract after an impressive Summer League performance last year.
