Malcolm Miller Signs Two-Way Contract With Toronto Raptors
TORONTO, Ontario - Forward Malcolm Miller, a 2015 Holy Cross graduate, has signed a two-way contract with the Toronto Raptors. Miller will begin his time with the organization by playing for the Raptors' team in the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
Two-way contracts are new under the collective bargaining agreement that went into place July 1, and effectively allow teams to have 17-man rosters with two players in hybrid situations. Players on two-way contracts must have three or fewer years of experience and can float between the G League and the NBA for up to 45 days. Toronto’s G League team, Raptors 905, is based in Mississauga, Ontario.
Miller played last season with Alba Berlin, after spending the 2015-2016 campaign with the Maine Red Claws. During his senior season at Holy Cross, Miller averaged 14.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.6 blocked shots, 1.3 steals and 1.2 assists per game, while connecting on 37.2 percent of his three-point field goal attempts (45 of 121) and 83.0 percent of his free throws (117 of 141). During his career with the Crusaders, he totaled 1,013 points, 532 rebounds, 164 assists, 143 blocked shots and 93 steals. Miller ranks third all-time at Holy Cross in career blocked shots and seventh in career games started (93).
