The Toronto Raptors announced Thursday they have signed guard Sundiata Gaines to a 10-day contract.

Gaines, 6-foot-1, 195 pounds has appeared in 40 regular season games with Minnesota and Utah averaging 3.2 points, 1.1 assists and 7.0 minutes. He was signed by Minnesota on November 12 and saw action in eight games totaling 21 points, six assists and 65 minutes. He was released by the Timberwolves on January 4.

Gaines played in 32 games with Utah in the 2009-10 season. He signed two 10-day contracts with the Jazz in January before being inked for the remainder of the season on January 25. He averaged 3.3 points, 1.2 assists and 6.8 minutes in 32 contests. He appeared in five postseason games where he totaled 11 points (5-for-6 FG) in seven minutes.

Gaines also played in the NBDL last season with the Idaho Stampede. He averaged 23.9 points with 4.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 14 games.

A 2008 product of the University of Georgia, Gaines began his professional career with NGC Cantu in the Italian League in the 2008-09 season. He averaged 13.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 30 outings.

Toronto’s roster now stands at 15 players.

Gaines is scheduled to participate in today’s practice and be available to the team for Friday’s game when the Raptors play host to the Detroit Pistons at Air Canada Centre. Game time is 7 p.m. (TSN/FAN 590).

So they finally get a backup PG after the first game in a while where both Jose and Bayless play. lol It's about time, though.

I was watching that game, when he was with Utah - what a game, and what a huge shot that was - I thought he would stick after that (as he played well for Utah, not just for that shot), but he's had a tough time staying with a team.

I assume this is just a 10 day, until the team gets healthier, and he may even be signed to a second 10 day, heading closer to the deadline, depending on what BC decides to do.

Another Raps injury note: Amir Johnson tweaked his back during practice. He seems to think he'll be alright for tomorrow, though. #Raptors
