The Toronto Raptors have added some depth off the bench by signing former Atlanta Hawks first-round pick DeAndre' Bembry, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter reports that the contract is for two years and worth $4 million.

Bembry, 26, played the first four seasons of his career in Atlanta as both a small forward and a shooting guard after being selected by the Hawks 21st overall in 2016. Last season he was limited to only 43 games by a nagging groin injury and averaged 5.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 1.9 assists a game. He shot 46 per cent from the field but only 23 per cent from beyond the arc.

Earlier on Sunday, the Raptors signed big men Aron Baynes and Chris Boucher to two-year contracts after losing Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka, who both left the team in free agency.
