The Toronto Raptors have signed free agent forward Ishmail Wainwright to a two-year contract, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

This is Toronto’s second free agency signing this week after Sam Dekker, another forward, signed with the Raptors on Tuesday.

Wainright scored 11.8 points per game while averaging 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists playing for SIG Strasbourg in the French Jeep Elite League in France this past season.

He played for Baylor for four seasons while also playing for the football team. Wainright went undrafted in both the NBA and NFL drafts after his senior season in 2017 but managed to earn a tryout with the Buffalo Bills in 2018.
