By  | 

ROCKFORD, Ill (WIFR) -- Fred VanVleet has signed a contract to play with the Toronto Raptors.The Auburn grad signed a summer league deal with an invitation to training camp.

VanVleet was not selected in last night's NBA draft. But VanVleet told friends and family at his draft party "I had a chance to get drafted 47th and 54th but they (the Magic and Hawks) were talking about putting me in the D-League for 2 or 3 years. I turned those down and bet on myself."

VanVleet's first summer league game will be July 8th.

Fellow Rockford native Marcus Posley has had interest from the Knicks, Nets and Wizards but has not signed anywhere yet.
