Raptors Assign Rookie Malachi Flynn to G League


The Toronto Raptors have assigned rookie Malachi Flynn to play for the G League to join the Raptors 905 in Orlando, according to Raptors PR.

The 22-year-old first-round pick has played in 13 games of the Raptors 21 games this season, averaging just 2.2 points per game. His minutes have not been nearly as high as anticipated after an impressive preseason and he had not seen any meaningful action since January 24.

Flynn should now be in line for significant playing time as he develops with the 905 over the next month. Following a four-day quarantine, Flynn will join fellow rookie Jalen Harris as the two young stars down in the G League’s Orlando Bubble. 

The 905 will tip off their season in exactly one week with their first game coming on February 10 against the Rio Grande Vipers at 7:30 p.m. ET.
