Rapper Master P signed a contract Monday (Sept. 13) with the NBA's
Toronto Raptors and has been invited to training camp to try out for the
basketball team, according to Raptors spokesperson Dave Haggith. The
6-foot-4 rapper, born Percy Miller, played two exhibition games with the
Charlotte Hornets early this year but failed to make the team. The former
New Orleans high-school star, a guard, also played briefly for the Fort
Wayne Fury of the Continental Basketball Association in 1998.
