Former Rutgers basketball star Ron Harper Jr. put in a fine effort for the Toronto Raptors in a 93-83 loss to the Chicago Bulls in Tuesday night’s Summer League action.

Harper, who surprisingly went undrafted, signed a two-way contract with the Raptors that puts him in a solid position to make the roster.

After scoring nine points in the Summer League opener, Harper didn’t take as many shots on Tuesday night. Still, his shooting percentage was up on 2-for-4 shooting including 1-for-3 from three-point range.

On Tuesday, he finished with five points with three rebounds in 22:04 of action. He had the fourth-most minutes of any Toronto player.

This past Saturday, Harper had nine points and five rebounds along with two steals as the Raptors beat the Philadelphia 76ers 97-77. He was 2-for-6 shooting in his NBA Summer League debut.

A standout at Rutgers, Harper was a pivotal piece in the Scarlet Knights making consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances for the first time since 1976.
