NBA Trade News: Shannon Scott Agrees To Deal With Raptors
Free agent point-guard Shannon Scott has agreed to a partially guaranteed deal with the Toronto Raptors, according to league sources.
22-year-old youngster Scott went undrafted during the NBA draft.
The Raptors already have 14 players with guaranteed salaries among which three are recognized point-guards, Kyle Lowry, Cory Joseph and Delon Wright. Shannon Scott joins as the fourth one.
Scott’s Future And Stats
Scott displayed his potential to guide the San Antonio Spurs to the summer league title at Las Vegas in July. He averaged 5.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.6 assists in seven games of the league.
Scott also featured as a senior in Ohio State registering a pleasing performance. He averaged 8.5 points, 5.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game there.
Ronald Roberts, Michale Kyser and Axel Toupane are also in the bid for the final roster spot of Toronto Raptors on a partially guaranteed contract. Shannon Scott now joins the race with them.
Roberts is the favorite to win the 15th spot. Its difficult to see Scott finding a role in the Raptors’ squad because of his poor scoring abilities.
Most important fact is that Toronto doesn’t require another point-guard in their roster, which already has three. Unless that somehow changes, Scott is most likely headed to the Raptors’ D-League affiliate.
