The sharpshooter reportedly had interest from contenders, but he signed with Toronto presumably with the hope of seeing more playing time. He's been on three teams -- the Pistons, Lakers and Thunder -- since being drafted 47th overall in 2018. He's a career 36.2 percent three-point shooter but has also shown some playmaking upside with 3.0 assists per 36 minutes. It seems feasible for Mykhailiuk to potentially see 20 minutes per game as a backup at both shooting guard and small forward. However, he'll be competing with other reserves like Malachi Flynn and Goran Dragic.

Signs rookie contract
The fourth overall selection in the 2021 NBA Draft reached a deal with the Raptors on Sunday. Barnes could have a big role with the Raptors in his rookie season after averaging 10.3 points, 4.1 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals during his freshman season at Florida State. The 20-year-old will likely compete for minutes with OG Anunoby and Stanley Johnson. The forward will debut in his first Summer League game Sunday.
