Our basketball fam is officially growing. There are two new Toronto Raptors to love after yesterday's NBA Draft, and here's what you need to know about them.
22-year-old Malachi Flynn was the first draft. Flynn was playing for San Diego State University before the Raptors scooped him up.
According to Sportsnet, Flynn hails from Tacoma, Washington, and is the youngest of seven children. Looks like he already knows how to be a team player!
One feature to note about Flynn is his height. Similar to Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet, Flynn stands at only 6'1".

Jalen Harris was the second draft of the day. He will be leaving the University of Nevada, where was playing college ball.
According to Sportsnet, Harris grew up in the suburbs of Texas and both of his parents were successful college basketball players.
He was the first player in Nevada history to score 30 or more points in four consecutive games, says NBA.com.
Both Harris and Flynn are point guards.
Raptors fans on Twitter haven't wasted a moment to give the new players a warm welcome.
