After rejecting multiple two-way contracts during the NBA Draft, former Ole Miss shooting guard Terence Davis has officially signed his first NBA contract with the Toronto Raptors. 

This comes after Davis had a spectacular showing with the Denver Nuggets in a 84-79 victory over the Orlando Magic in their first Summer League game on Sunday. In the first half, Davis recorded 11 points (team high), shot 67% from the field and 50% from the three point arc. He added a steal and a block to his stats sheet. He finished with 22 points, shooting 61.5% field goal percentage and 71.4% from three in 30 minutes of action. He added 5 rebounds and 3 assists in his debut. 

As for the details of the contract, Davis signed a two year deal with defending NBA champions—the Toronto Raptors—with the first year of the contract being fully guaranteed. 

Davis’s former head coach, Kermit Davis, took to Twitter to congratulate his former shooting guard on his recent NBA success tweeting, “It was great to be in the arena to watch @terencedavisjr play so well in his first @NBA start! Hotty Toddy.”

Davis himself was excited about the news of signing his first NBA contract by tweeting, “Tonight is my draft night.”

The former Rebel will look to continue his success, now as a Raptor instead of a Nugget, in the summer league as the Raptors take on the San Antonio Spurs this evening at 6 p.m. on ESPNU.
