The Toronto Raptors have agreed to a three-year, partially guaranteed rookie contract with Dewan Hernandez, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
Hernandez was selected with the No. 59 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft after missing the 2018-19 NCAA season due to eligibility issues.
The power forward/center impressed during Summer League, showing a strong ability to get to the rim with speed and power from the three-point line.

Hernandez averaged 11.4 points and 6.7 rebounds during the 2017-18 season at the University of Miami, his final collegiate season.
The 22-year-old was a highly-sought-after recruit coming out of high school and was chosen for the McDonald’s All-American Game.
