Draft

Top undrafted free agents

Let’s try to fill out the Summer League roster.

At the end of the 2017 NBA Draft, there were still a handful of interesting names available. As always.

We don’t know how the Raptors will have ranked these guys, but this exercise a year ago revealed Fred VanVleet as a potential target of the team ahead of Las Vegas Summer League, so I’m deeming it worthwhile again. The Raptors, after all, will have Summer League spots to fill (including an extra one since OG Anunoby won’t be playing), and the two new two-way contracts available to teams could make sense for undrafted free agents. Unfortunately, a lot of the really intriguing players that seemed to be slipping got scooped up eventually. Still, some decent fliers are out there.

Here are the top names still available, based on our weighted composite rankings:

Rank Player Ford Express O’Connor Riddell Vecenie Pelton Average High Low
42 Cameron Oliver 46 55 38 30 48 41 43.2 30 55
44 Johnathan Motley 40 39 41 47 36 99 45.9 36 47
49 Devin Robinson 45 49 37 45 52 94 50.0 37 52
54 P.J. Dozier 52 52 52 46 47 105 54.8 46 52
56 L.J. Peak 86 46 49 37 53 105 58.8 37 86

73 Jonathan Jeanne 83 42 105 105 15 76.1 42 105
74 James Blackmon Jr. 84 83   86 76 29 76.3 76 86
75 Chris Boucher 56 86   93 97 24 76.4 56 97
76 Jake Wiley 105 63 71 69 87 78.1 63 105
77 Melo Trimble 77 84 83 81 54 78.2 77 84
79 Isaiah Briscoe 67 71 98 71 105 79.9 67 98
80 George de Paula 105 72 56 94 81.8 56 105

(Note: Oliver, Blackmon, and Boucher have already signed with Houston, Philly, and Golden State, respectively. Damn this stuff moves quick.)

And here’s a look at the list of undrafted players who the Raptors worked out in the pre-draft process:

Jonathan Jeanne 7-Jun 76.1 42 105
Isaiah Briscoe 23-May 79.9 67 98
Kennedy Meeks 5-Jun 85.6 65 105

Will any of these wind up on the roster in Vegas or, like VanVleet, earn a spot with the main team? It’s way too early to figure. The Raptors have done well by undrafted free agents in recent years, have earned a strong reputation for player development, and have a solid situation to offer undrafted free agents.

(As a side-note, it was rumored to be quite expensive to buy into the second round before the draft, and things played out that way. Golden State paid $3.5M for the No. 38 pick, and the Raptors only had $2.5M to offer in any deal. That probably could have gotten them a pick in the 50s, but maybe not the early-40s, and that would have been a hefty price once the juicy names started flying off the board.)
