The Raptors also came to terms with forward Devin Robinson and centre Sagaba Konate.

The 6-foot-8, 200-pound Robinson appeared in seven games with the Washington Wizards last year, averaging 6.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 13.6 minutes.

Konate, listed at 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, was limited to eight games with West Virginia last season owing to a right knee injury. He averaged 8.0 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.4 blocks and 18.7 minutes in 81 career games with the school.

As a sophomore, he was named to the all-Big 12 third team and Big 12 All-Defensive team.
