Toronto Raptors Moving Quickly, Sign Terence Davis to 2-year Deal
President Masai Ujiri and General Manager Bobby Webster haven’t stopped working since the heartbreaking end to the Kawhi Leonard Sweepstakes.
Early Monday morning, it was announced the Toronto Raptors signed undrafted guard Terence Davis out of Ole Miss. The senior sign rejected a number of two-way deals on Draft night and has now received a fully-guaranteed first season. Davis averaged 15.2 points on 44.9-percent shooting in his final college season.

A player built from the same mold as Fred VanVleet, Davis bet on himself on Draft night and worked his way onto an NBA roster, the roster of the reigning champions no less.
Scoring 22 points in his Summer League debut on Sunday with the Denver Nuggets, Davis scored 22 points on 8-for-13 shooting, hitting five of his seven three pointers on the day. He would also go on to grab five boards and dish out three assists.
“He was awesome. I mean, so happy for him. I said it since day one, he’s an NBA player,” Nuggets Summer League coach Jordi Fernandez said on Davis’ brilliant debut. “He proved it today and I think he’ll keep doing it because this kid is mentally really tough.”
Still relatively unproven, the Raptors have struck gold with this sort of stuff before and if anything is for certain, it is that you can never doubt Masai.
