On Thursday, the Toronto Raptors announced that they signed rookie Freddie Gillespie to a 10-day contract after a successful stint in the NBA G League with the Memphis Hustle.

Gillespie, who went undrafted out of Baylor, averaged 10.5 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocked shots in 15 games with the Hustle. He shot 57% from the field and registered six double-doubles, which ranked eighth among all players.

With the Raptors in action on Thursday, Gillespie did not play in the 122-113 loss to the Chicago Bulls but could be available on Saturday when the team faces the Cleveland Cavaliers on the road.

Gillespie will wear No. 55 with the Raptors.

The addition of Gillespie projects to give the Raptors some rebounding and defense. The team has dealt with several injuries as of late and the signing will add some depth to the bench in the immediate short team on his 10-day contract.
