O.G. Anunoby, Malcolm Miller Headline Raptors Summer League Squad
As June nears its end, the Toronto Raptors have been filling out their NBA Summer League roster. Here’s how it looks so far:
A 6’5 guard out of Arizona, Alkins went undrafted before signing a camp deal with the Raptors. Despite missing time with a broken foot, he was named an All-Pac-12 Honourable Mention. Now healthy, he will receive a chance to prove himself.
Drafted 23rd in 2017, OG is coming off a solid rookie season with the Raptors. The Indiana product averaged 5.9 PPG, while shooting 37% from 3 and providing solid defence.
A member of Raptors 905, The 6’6 swingman out of Seton Hall is a G League veteran known for his defence and 3-point shooting. He was named to the All-Defensive G League Team in 2014-15.
Lima is a 6’10 Brazilian centre, who has manned the middle for a number of teams around the world, including Zalgiris Kaunas, where he won a Lithunian title in 2016-17 and played in the EuroLeague. He is a solid rebounder and shot-blocker.
Signed by the Raptors to a two-way contract in 2017, Miller spent most of last season with Raptors 905. With Anunoby struggling in the 2nd half, Miller saw some time with the big club late in the season, starting a few games at small forward.
The athletic 6’3 guard out of Wake Forest spent last season in Russia, averaging 16.4 points, 8.0 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game.
Similar to Malcolm Miller, McKinnie was on a two-way contract last season. He averaged 14 PPG and 7.5 RPG in 35 games with the 905, while making 14 appearances with Toronto.
Potts went undrafted after a 4-year run at Middle Tennessee. The 6’2 guard was named 2nd Team All-Conference USA last season.
The 22nd pick in the 2016 draft, Richardson was acquired from Sacramento this past season. The former McDonald’s All-American has appeared in 48 NBA games over 2 seasons, averaging 3.5 PPG.
