For the first time in months, the Toronto Raptors will play basketball. Summer League play has often been the place where the Raptors can unveil prized rookies or show the depth and quality of their developmental system by bringing in G League players from far and wide.

In 2021, fans were treated to the debut of Scottie Barnes before his Rookie of the Yea campaign. Last season, Christian Koloko proved he could hold his own alongside a standout point guard in Jeff Dowtin that became a fan favorite by the end of the season.

With plenty of interesting rookies, veterans looking for one more chance in the professional ranks, and G League standouts trying to latch on with Eric Khoury and Toronto’s much-hyped system, let’s get to know the 16 players who will put on a show in Vegas.

Please note that due to a respiratory illness for Koloko and ankle surgery for Dowtin, both of them will not be on this roster.

Toronto Raptors Summer League Roster 2023


  • Moses Brown (7-2, 245): A former top recruit and UCLA stud, the gargantuan big man has averaged 5.5 points and 5.2 rebounds per game in 128 games with six different NBA franchises.
  • David McCormack (6-10, 250): A traditional center who started 96 games in four years a Kansas while averaging double figures in points per game twice, McCormack spent last season in Türkiye with Besiktas.
  • Moses Wright (6-8, 226): Wright was named ACC Player of the Year in 2021 at Georgia Tech, made All-NBA G League First Team with the Clippers, and played a few games with the Mavericks before joining the Zhejiang Golden Bulls in China.


  • Gradey Dick (6-8, 205): The star of the show in Summer League, Dick is fresh off a tremendous season with the Jayhawks and figures to be a big part of the team’s rotation.
  • Ron Harper Jr. (6-5, 242): Harper didn’t really get to show his skills in the NBA much last year, but he was tearing up the G League. His unique style of play could serve him well in Las Vegas.
  • DJ Hogg (6-9, 225): After bouncing around the G League for a few years, Hogg moved to Australia and spent the last two seasons tearing up the league to the tune of 17.6 points per game.
  • Mouhamadou Gueye (6-8, 215): The former AEC Defensive Player of the Year and Pitt product was one of the best players for the Texas Legends, Dallas’ G League team, last season.
  • Kevin Obanor (6-8, 235): Obanor, who averaged 13.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game in five seasons split between Oral Roberts and Texas Tech, signed an Exhibit 10 deal with the Raptors.
  • JT Shumate (6-7, 210): Shumate averaged 14.5 points per game in three years at Toledo, but his 43.7% career success rate from 3-point range is what got the Raptors interested.
  • Joe Wieskamp (6-6, 210): While his stint with the Raptors last year was largely unimpressive, the former second-round pick looks poised to show his 3-point shot is worthy of an NBA roster slot.


  • Desmond Cambridge Jr (6-4, 180): A five-year player who averaged at least 13.6 points and 1.0 steals per game in all five seasons, Cambridge spent time at Brown before transferring to Nevada and Arizona State.
  • Ahmad Caver (6-2, 175): The Old Dominion product, who spent parts of three seasons with the G League’s Memphis Hustle, is fresh off winning MVP of the Lithuanian Basketball League with BC Wolves.
  • David Johnson (6-4, 205): A former second-round pick who outlasted teammate Dalano Banton, Johnson needs to show he can be an NBA player after failing to really flex his muscles in the G League during the last two seasons.
  • Darryl Morsell (6-5, 205): After starting 139 college games during four years at Maryland and one at Marquette, Morsell will bring his solid defensive skills to Toronto.
  • RJ Nembhard (6-4, 200): After a sterling career at TCU and a brief cameo with the Cavaliers in 2021-22, Nembhard had success with Fos Provence Basket in France.
  • Markquis Nowell (5-8, 160): A March Madness hero who captivated the basketball world by leading the Cinderella Kansas State Wildcats to multiple big upsets, thetwo-way signee will need to overcome his physical limits.
