Raptors Second Round Pick DeAndre Daniels to Play in Australia

DeAndre Daniels to play for the Perth Wildcats next season.

According to a report in the Herald Sun (Australian site), Raptors second rounder DeAndre Daniels will be joining the Perth Wildcats. The report states:

Almost a year to the day after signing James Ennis, who has returned to the US to play with the Miami Heat, the Wildcats have pulled off a similar coup by landing Daniels.

“I’m going to Australia for four months, a long vacation, and I’m going back and will be with the Raptors,” Daniels was quoted as saying.

“I’m just going to go out there and not look at it as a negative, but look at it as a positive.

“I’m just going to go out there and get better.”

The 6’8″ Junior from UConn had a decent showing in the Vegas summer league (recent interview here). Daniels 10 points, 6.2 rebounds, and .4 steals while shooting 36% from the floor in the Vegas summer league. He also shot 26% from three, while taking 23 threes in the five games.

Here’s his Twitter.
