Deng Adel Rumors
The Toronto Raptors announced Friday they have signed forwards Deng Adel and Kyle Collinsworth. Per team policy, financial terms of the deals were not disclosed. Adel, 6-foot-7, 200 pounds, played three seasons at Louisville (2015-18), averaging 11.2 points, 4.1 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 89 career games (71 starts). He posted collegiate highs his junior year (2017-18), averaging 15.0 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 33.1 minutes.
Swingman Deng Adel could join the swag of Australians in the NBA after signing a training camp deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves, and if he doesn’t, there’s a spot waiting for him with NBL champions Melbourne. The 22-year-old, who was born in South Sudan but raised in Melbourne, caught the eye of scouts during a late stint with the Houston Rockets in the NBA Summer League.
