Terence Davis began receiving contract offers at halftime of his first Vegas Summer League game in July. Davis finished the game with 22 points and five three-pointers just days after going undrafted in June.
Within hours after the game, Davis had a guaranteed contract with the Toronto Raptors.
"I had to make sure nobody was looking over my shoulder reading my texts," agent Adam Pensack said. "Several of the teams I was texting with were sitting near me and I didn't want them to see the conversations I was having about TD. It was a very unique situation."
In addition to Davis, the Raptors also have Fred VanVleet and Chris Boucher as key contributors who went undrafted.
"You're seeing more undrafted guys contribute, and I think a possible reason is the difference between the 25th player in the draft and the 95th player is getting thinner," said Nick Nurse. "It makes player development and using your G League team important factors."
The Raptors believe Raptors 905's 2017 G League title with VanVleet and Siakam playing large roles was a key element of the franchise winning an NBA title in 2019.
