During the course of nine NBA games he participated in last season for Golden State, Milwaukee, and Orlando, Jeffl averaged 2.1points, two rebounds, and 1.1 assists. Over the course of two seasons, he played in 37 regular-season games for the Lakeland Magic and Wisconsin Herd in the NBA G League, averaging 15.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.1 steals in 27.8 minutes per game. He contributed to the Magic’s 2021 NBA G League Championship triumph.
Dowtin will be a reserve guard for the Raptors, competing for minutes behind Fred VanVleet with Malachi Flynn and Dalano Banton. The deal is the second of Toronto’s two two-way deals; the first was signed by Ron Harper Jr., an undrafted free agent who joined the Raptors after the 2022 NBA Draft.
Oren Weisfeld from the Sportsnet said, “Someone who Raptors fans didn’t know what to expect from was 25-year-old point guard Jeff Dowtin, who broke out as arguably the best and definitely the most steady Raptor there. He’s not going to throw flashy passes or try to thread the needle like Banton, but Dowtin has a calming presence that was necessary and will be valued by coaches around the NBA”
