The Toronto Raptors are all set for training camp.
They filled up the final spot of their training camp roster on Friday.
After waiving Kevin Obanor on Thursday afternoon, the team has signed Darryl Morsell:
The Raptors have signed Raptors 905 wing Darryl Morsell to an Exhibit 10 deal.
He'll be in camp with the team and get the Ex10 bonus if/when he's waived and re-joins Raptors 905.

Morsell is a 6-foot-5 guard and played with the Raptors in Summer League. He averaged 7.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in four games.
Morsell spent four years at Maryland before transferring to Marquette for his final year of college. He went undrafted in 2022 as a fifth-year senior.
The Raptors now have the full 21 players for training camp. They have three two-way players in Javon Freeman-Liberty, Ron Harper Jr., and Markquis Nowell. Meanwhile, Jeff Dowtin Jr. is on a non-guaranteed deal.
The Raptors will have Media Day on Monday Oct. 2 and then they begin training camp in Burnaby, British Columbia on Oct. 3.
Raptors gear up for 2023-24 season
The Raptors enter the 2023-24 season with a new head coach in Darko Rajakovic and a clean slate. After a subpar 2022-23 season, the Raptors are hoping for a much better upcoming campaign.
This season will be all about player development. The Raptors are hoping Rajakovic can help the younger players on the team take their game to new heights. Especially Scottie Barnes who will have big expectations on him for his third season.
Another thing to look out for this season is what the Raptors end up doing with Gary Trent Jr., OG Anunoy and Pascal Siakam who are all set to become unrestricted free agents next summer. Will the Raptors look to trade these players at the trade deadline if the season doesn’t go to plan for them? Anunoby and Siakam will be in line for big pay days.
This is shaping up to be an interesting season for the Raptors.
Toronto kicks off their regular season on Oct. 25 against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
