Norman Powell Signs Four-Year Extension with Toronto Raptors

There’s not many people on this earth as happy on this morning as the Toronto Raptors’ young shooting guard Norman Powell.

A middle of the second round selection just two years ago, Powell has turned into one of the most impressive players on the roster and a big part of the Raptors core. Today, the UCLA product was rewarded with a four-year, $42-million extension which will kick in following this season. The fourth year in the deal is a player option according to league sources.

Expected to play a significant role on the Raptors bid for overcoming their playoff struggles, Powell has emerged as one of the league’s best young two-way guards. With a very much improved three-point shot when considering his non-existant outside game in college, Powell has also become one of the Eastern Conference’s most fierce slashers.

The former 46th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft has averaged 7.3-points per game over his first two seasons in the league. In a prominent bench role, Powell was the most effective contributor on the Raptors 2016-17 roster, averaging 8.4-points a contest.

In nine playoff games last season, Powell averaged 11.7-points per game while shooting 44% from beyond the arc.
