Another one bites the dust. Raptors 905 head coach Jesse Mermuys must be doing a really good job as his team has just lost another player to the NBA. Center Greg Smith is being called up to the Minnesota Timberwolves on a 10 day contract.

The Raptors 905 had just found out Axel Toupane is heading to the Denver Nuggets on a 10 day contract to make this the second player about to leave for nothing on the same day.
Smith has played in parts of the last four NBA seasons with Houston and Dallas totaling 131 games. He has averaged 4.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in 12.5 minutes over that period.
With the 905 this season, the 25-year-old Smith has averaged 12.6 points, 8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 27.6 minutes over 17 games.
