Sam Dekker will join the Toronto Raptors, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Dekker, 27, logged 204 appearances in the NBA between the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Washington Wizards. He was picked 18th overall out of Wisconsin in the 2015 draft. The Raptors are landing him after he moved his talents to Europe for 2019-20 and 2020-21.

His travels initially landed him in Russia for Lokomotiv Kuban. He competed in the 7DAYS EuroCup and VTB United League before moving to Turkey’s Turk Telekom. He averaged 13.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per Basketball Champions League match, and 15.0 points per BSL game at the domestic level.
