It looks like Canadian forward Oshae Brissett has signed a contract with the Toronto Raptors.

In a post he made on Instagram, Brissett was seen in a photo wearing a red Raptors t-shirt signing what appears to be a contract with the caption, “For the love of the city!!”

For the love of the city‼️ #HometownHero


Brissett, a Toronto native, spent the last two seasons at Syracuse University where he averaged 13.7 points and 8.2 rebounds during his time there.

The 21-year-old entered the 2019 NBA Draft but went undrafted. However, he recently played in the Las Vegas NBA Summer League with the Los Angeles Clippers where he averaged 6.6 points in 17.6 minutes per game across the five games he played there.

It would seem Brissett impressed enough over those five games to earn an NBA shot with the Raptors.

And though details haven’t been made official it’s likely that this supposed contract Brissett was seen signing is either a two-way deal or an Exhibit 10 contract, which would give him an invite to Raptors training camp and a chance to make the team proper.

Earlier this week, Brissett was named one of 29 players invited to Canada Basketball’s senior men’s national team training camp for the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.
