Kyle Wiltjer signs with the Toronto Raptors after being waived by the Los Angeles Clippers, which he was instantly waived after he was sent over to Los Angeles in the Chris Paul trade with the Houston Rockets.
Oliver Maroney and Robby Kalland of Dime have reported that the free agent forward has agreed to a one-year deal with the Raptors. The deal will be non-guaranteed.
Next, the Raptors only have 13 guaranteed contracts on their roster at this point, so Wiltjer has good chance to compete for one of those last two regular-season roster slots. The former Gonzaga product will be in a tough battle with Kennedy Meeks and Alfonzo McKinnie.
In addition, Wiltjer brings versatility on the offensive side of the court, as he can stretch the floor unlike Meeks.
Finally, he appeared in just 14 games for the Rockets. The 6’10” forward saw more action in the G League, as he averaged a high 20.5 points per game and 6.4 rebounds per game with a 38 three-point percentage in 22 contests for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
