TORONTO - The Toronto Raptors signed first round draft pick Bruno Caboclo to a rookie contract on Wednesday.

Caboclo, an 18-year-old Brazilian forward, is under contract through the 2015-16 season, with two team option years to follow. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Raptors selected Caboclo with the 20th overall pick of the 2014 NBA draft.

The 6-foot-9, 205-pound Caboclo was named MVP at the 2013 Basketball Without Borders Americas. He played in 16 games this past season with Pinheiros in Sao Paulo, where he contributed 4.9 points and 3.1 rebounds. In three Liga Americas games, he averaged 8.0 points shooting .714 from the field and .667 from three-point range.

Caboclo and the Raptors open their preliminary round at the 2014 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas on Friday versus the Los Angeles Lakers.
