The Toronto Raptors have made their third move at the trade deadline, this time sending guard Terence Davis II to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for a second-round draft pick, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski:
The Athletic’s Blake Murphy reported that the second round pick the Raptors are receiving from the Kings is a 2021 pick that originally belonged to the Memphis Grizzlies.
Davis, 23, came to the Raptors after being a standout in the 2019 NBA Summer League, earning himself a training camp invite and ultimately the final spot on the NBA roster. In 106 career games, Davis averaged 7.3 points per game and 2.9 rebounds per game on 44.3 percent shooting.
Davis was arrested on October 27th, 2020 after being accused of assaulting his girlfriend. Five of the seven charges were dismissed in February while the two remaining charges could be dismissed after a one-year adjournment.
A native of Mississippi, he earned a reputation as a spark-plug off the bench who could provide instant scoring and some on-ball defence in spurts. On the Kings, he should be able to find some situational minutes in the rotation, and theoretically is a nice fit next to the newly-acquired Delon Wright.
