Raptors acquire Wiltjer

The Toronto Raptors have had a decent offseason as they were able to re-sign one of their franchise player in Kyle Lowry. Now as they finalize their, roster they add a solid but raw forward in Kyle Wiltjer as reported by RealGM Staff.

The Canadian-American forward went undrafted in the 2016 NBA Draft but later on joined the Houston Rockets for their summer league.

Later that season he eventually signed with the Rockets where he appeared in 14 games, he then got traded to the Los Angeles Clippers last month as part of the Chris Paul trade. He was then Waived by the Clippers and now he will make his mark on the Toronto Raptors. He has averaged 0.9 points, 0.1 blocks, 0.2 steals, 0.1 assists, and 0.7 rebounds while shooting 28.6 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from beyond the arc.

The Raptors will strive to get better this offseason as the NBA regular season is right around the corner. With the East getting significantly weaker with all-stars shifting to the Western Conference and the Cavaliers facing a huge offseason problem the Raptors will have a good chance of making a deep run in next years post season.
