Son of Raptors’ Analyst Receives Camp Deal with Toronto Franchise
Since the Toronto Raptors’ inception in 1995, Canadian-born Leo Rautins has been a focal point of the organization’s broadcast team.
Working as an analyst alongside some of Toronto’s biggest name in sports broadcasting as well as being the former head coach of Canada’s National Team, Rautins has turned into one of the most reputable basketball names in Canada. Now, his son Andy Rautins is set to receive a shot to crack the Raptors’ organization.
Sources: Andy Rautins has agreed to camp deal with Toronto. His shooting made impression in workouts. W/ 13 guaranteed deals, he'll compete.

A star at Syracuse, Rautins was a New York Knicks’ second round pick back in 2010, but has not had a role in the NBA since his rookie season. Since 2015, Rautins has played with Gaziantep, a professional basketball club in Turkey.
The sharp-shooting Canuck will now have a chance of finding his way back into the NBA as part of his native country’s basketball team.
There’s really no place like home.
