A former Michigan State basketball player heads north.
The Toronto Raptors announced Wednesday that the club has reached an agreement with former Spartans captain Gabe Brown. According to his agent, Steven Haney, the non-guaranteed one-year deal could be converted into a two-way deal or a 10-piece deal if Brown doesn’t kick the team out of training camp.
Exhibit 10 is a non-guaranteed minimum agreement to attend training camp, where the team controls the player’s G League rights. If Brown is able to spend more than 60 days with the G-League affiliate (in this case, Raptors 905), he is eligible for a $50,000 bonus.
