Synopsis: In my latest at Sportsnet, I provided scouting reports on the new emergency call-up Raptors because we live in a capitalist hellscape.
The Toronto Raptors are signing four G League players to short-term contracts.
With Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam, Gary Trent Jr., Scottie Barnes, Precious Achiuwa, Dalano Banton and Malachi Flynn all in the league’s health-and-safety protocols, the Raptors are adding Brandon Goodwin, Juwan Morgan, Nik Stauskas and Tremont Waters on 10-day contracts.
This is supposed to be an article I write in August, when the team is filling out their training camp roster with Exhibit 10 contracts who will represent the core of the Raptors 905 roster. It’s not supposed to be an article written here in December, as NBA teams scramble to add replacement players amid a major COVID outbreak around the league. But with over 100 players entering the league’s health and safety protocols in December, the league has allowed for teams to add players.
