TORONTO — The Toronto Raptors have signed 2015 draft pick Norman Powell.

Toronto selected the six-foot-four, 215-pound guard in the second round, 46th overall, of the 2015 NBA draft.

Powell is averaging a team-leading 19.3 points and is shooting 22-for-37 (.595) from the field through three Summer League games.

Powell appeared in 141 games over four seasons at UCLA and averaged a career-high 16.4 points during the 2014-15 campaign. He ranks 28th on the Bruins’ all-time scoring list with 1,376 career points.

Powell helped UCLA reach the NCAA men’s basketball tournament three times (2013, 2014 and 2015), including trips to the round of 16 in 2014 and 2015.
