The Toronto Raptors have added a little more depth and versatility to their roster.

Swingman Svi Mykhailiuk is joining the Raptors on a two-year deal that includes a player option for the second season, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Mykhailiuk, 24, has seen time at both shooting guard and small forward during his three years in the NBA and brings value with his career 36.2 percent mark from three-point range.

A native of Ukraine, Mykhailiuk split the 2020-21 campaign between the Oklahoma City Thunder and Detroit Pistons, averaging 8.5 points per game across 66 contests. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers 47th overall in 2018 and spent half a season with them before being sent to Detroit.

Toronto is undergoing a transitional offseason after franchise icon Kyle Lowry joined the Miami Heat. In addition to Mykhailiuk, other new faces on the team include Goran Dragic, Precious Achiuwa, Sam Dekker and Isaac Bonga. Canadian centre Khem Birch also elected to re-sign with the club this summer.
