Toronto Raptors Continue to Add Names to Roster, Sign Isaac Bonga
This will not go down as one of the more flashier offseason in Toronto Raptors history.
After making a slew of underwhelming signings, the Toronto Raptors have now reportedly added athletic forward Isaac Bonga to the mix.
The 22-year old became an unrestricted free agent following this past season, but the Washington Wizards opted to not extend a qualifying offer to the former second round pick. According to Blake Murphy of The Athletic, the terms of the deal have not yet been revealed, but it will likely include a small guarantee along with the opportunity to compete for a roster spot in training camp.
The Raptors are signing Isaac Bonga, per a source.
Would assume it’s another small guarantee to compete for a spot in camp.

The Raptors training camp roster now sits at 16 of the possible 20 spots.
After being selected 39th overall by the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2018 NBA Draft, Bonga was traded to the Washington Wizards where averaged 3.8 points and 2.7 rebounds per game over the last two seasons, albeit in limited minutes. Standing at 6-foot-8, with a 7-foot wingspan, Bonga presents yet another project for the Raptors player development staff to work with.
This will surely not be the Raptors final move ahead of camp, but based on the recent trade of acquisitions, it is safe to say that the Raptors will not be looking to make a big splash this Summer.
