The Raptors 905 have added E.C. Matthews and Michael Bethea Jr. to their roster after losing Justin Anderson and Paul Watson Jr. to 10-Day contracts last week.


Matthews, a 24 year-old shooting guard from Detroit, last played for the Erie BayHawks. He was selected 16th in the 2019 NBA G League Draft, but was waived by Erie on January 2nd, 2020 after appearing in 15 games.

In just over 12 minutes, the former Rhode Island Ram averaged nearly 4 points per game.



Bethea hails from Fremont, California and has spent the past two seasons in the G League after going undrafted in the 2017 NBA Draft. In his rookie G League season with the Reno Bighorns (now Stockton Kings), the 6’6 guard would average 5 points in 12 minutes. After joining the Grand Rapids Drive in the 2018-2019 season, the new father’s minutes would double, as would his scoring; averaging almost 11 points and 3.5 rebounds.



Both Matthews and Bethea will join the Raptors 905 on their upcoming 5 game road trip, beginning Friday, January 10th in Oklahoma City.
