Center Ulrich Chomche has signed a bilateral contract with the Toronto Birds of prey.

Chomche was selected 57th overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in last month’s NBA Draft.

It was reported in the media that that draft pick was actually traded to Toronto before Minnesota took Chomche.

The Raptors confirmed on Saturday that the deal had been completed and that the Timberwolves received a cash amount in return.

In accordance with team policy, the financial terms of Comche’s deal were not disclosed.

The 6-foot-1, 225-pound Chomche played 26 games for NBA Academy Africa during the 2023-24 season, averaging 8.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 24.3 minutes.

The previous two years he played in the Basketball Africa League.

Chomche was born on December 30, 2005 and was the youngest player in the 2024 NBA Draft class.
