As you can see, this move gives the Raptors 20 total players on the roster – including the team’s two Two-Way Contracts. This Exhibit 10 deal allows Brissett to attend training camp with Toronto while also giving him a chance to make the team proper as a two-way player or with a fully-guaranteed contract once the season starts.
The Raptors roster currently sits with a full stable of players now that Brissett has been signed, though a likely waive candidate is Malcolm Miller due to the guarantee date on his contract coming up sooner than later.
This move for the Raptors allows Brissett to get a chance to make an NBA/G-League squad after seeing his stats dip considerably in his sophomore season as a member of the Syracuse Orange.
Brissett could have opted to declare for the NBA Draft in 2018 after his freshman season, when he played extremely well for Syracuse to the tune of 14.9 points per game, 8.8 rebounds per game, 1.2 steals per game in 38.1 minutes per contest.
However, his sophomore season saw a decline in production across the board as well as a lowering of his minutes to 33 per contest. His points per game (12.4), rebounds per game (7.5) and steals per game (1.0) also all dipped from his prior production.
Perhaps that’s why Brissett went undrafted in 2019, but he clearly showed enough to the Raptors that they were willing to give him a shot at the next level.
