The Toronto Raptors have agreed to terms with E.J. Singler, Raptors Republic has learned. While the deal is yet to be signed, Singler will be in training camp with the Raptors, with a chance to win the 15th roster spot. Failing that, Singler has agreed to head to Raptors 905 of the D-League, should he clear waivers. That’s an important note, as while it’s always the hope with camp invites, they’re not contractually obligated to a D-League season, even if they get a partial guarantee.
While Singler won himself fans in the organization with a strong finish to the D-League season and an impressive performance with the club at Summer League, it was unclear if he’d opt for a camp invite over taking more lucrative overseas opportunities. The contract will likely contain a small guarantee to help supplement a potential D-League salary – Fred VanVleet and Jarrod Uthoff both received $50,000 guarantees on their camp deals – and Singler’s chosen the chance to fight for an NBA roster spot over a return to the international market.
