TORONTO — The Toronto Raptors have waived guard-forward Joe Wieskamp, the team announced Monday.
The 23-year-old signed a multi-year deal with Toronto on February 11 after signing 10-day contracts in January.
Wieskamp appeared in nine games for the Raptors last season, totaling nine points, four rebounds and three assists in 50 minutes. He also played in the G League, splitting time between the Wisconsin Herd and the Raptors 905.
The 6-foot-6, 205-pound player was most recently on Toronto’s summer league team, which went 1-4 and last played in Saturday’s 108-101 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
Wieskamp had a rough start but ended his stay in Las Vegas with a 27-point outing on 8-11 shooting in Saturday’s win. In four games, he averaged 13.5 points on 42.8 percent shooting from the field.
The two-year pro was drafted in the second round (41st overall) of the 2021 draft by the San Antonio Spurs.
