Pascal Siakam (born April 2, 1994) is a Cameroonian professional basketball player for the Toronto Raptors of the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Contents Early life

Siakam was born in Douala, Cameroon to Tchamo and Victorie Siakam and was the youngest of four brothers. Siakam's father worked at a local transit company and was also the mayor of Makénéné. Siakam initially planned to become a Catholic priest, but grew to love the game of basketball. He was discovered as a player by Luc Mbah a Moute at a local Basketball Without Borders camp. With Mbah a Moute as a mentor, Siakam moved to the United States at the age of 16. Siakam moved from one camp to the next to become a better professional basketball player before settling in Lewisville, Texas. He spent a year at God's Academy in Lewisville, due to previously being labeled ineligible for play,[1] before being recruited by New Mexico State University.

College career

Siakam first attended New Mexico State University in 2013. However, because of an injury, he redshirted the 2013–14 season. During his redshirted freshman year at New Mexico State in 2014–15, Siakam was named the Western Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year. He averaged 20.2 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in 34 games in 2015–16 en route to unanimous Western Athletic Conference Player of the Year honors.[2]

On April 19, 2016, Siakam declared for the NBA draft, forgoing his final two years of college eligibility.[3]

Professional career Toronto Raptors (2016–present)

On June 23, 2016, Siakam was selected by the Toronto Raptors with the 27th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. On July 9, 2016, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Raptors.[4] On October 26, 2016, Siakam became the first Toronto rookie to start a season opener since Jonas Valančiūnas in 2012, and rose to the occasion, hauling in nine rebounds to go along with four points in 21 minutes in a 109–91 win over the Detroit Pistons.[5] On December 3, 2016, he scored a season-high 14 points in a 128–84 win over the Atlanta Hawks.[6] On January 1, 2017, he recorded a season-high 10 rebounds in a 123–114 win over the Los Angeles Lakers.[6] Siakam started at power forward in all 34 games to start the 2016–17 season before being replaced in the starting line-up by Lucas Nogueira on January 5, 2017.[7] During his rookie season, Siakam received multiple assignments to Raptors 905, Toronto's D-League affiliate.[8] In April 2017, he helped Raptors 905 win the NBA Development League Championship. They defeated the Rio Grande Valley Vipers 2–1 in the finals, as Siakam averaged 23.0 points and 9.0 rebounds in the series. He was subsequently named the NBA D-League Finals MVP for his performance.[9]

On October 25, 2017, Siakam scored a then career-high 20 points in a 117–112 loss to the Golden State Warriors.[10] During the 2017–18 season, the Raptors' offensive rating was four points better with Siakam on the floor, compared to seven points worse his rookie year.[11] He was compared to Warriors' forward Draymond Green.[11]

On October 29, 2018, Siakam scored a career-high 22 points in a 124–109 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.[12][13] A day later, he had 15 points and a career-high 15 rebounds in a 129–112 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.[13] On November 10, he set a new career-high with 23 points in a 128–112 win over the New York Knicks.[14] He was subsequently named Eastern Conference Player of the Week for games played November 5–11, becoming the eighth player in franchise history to earn player of the week honours, joining DeMar DeRozan (10 times), Vince Carter (seven times), Chris Bosh (seven times), Kyle Lowry (four times), Mike James, Jalen Rose and Lou Williams.[15]
