Pascal Siakam is a professional basketball player in the National Basketball Association. He plays for the Toronto Raptors and is a former NBA All-Star and NBA Champion.
The son of Tchamo and Victorie Siakam, Pascal was born on April 2, 1994, in Douala, Cameroon. His father wanted Pascal’s life to be dedicated to Catholicism, but by the time he reached his teenage years, he was not interested in pursuing the priesthood. Siakam also showed no interest in basketball as a child. It wasn’t until all four of his older brothers received scholarships to play for major Division 1 universities that he began to consider the sport.
Former Houston Rockets player, Luc Mbah a Moute discovered Siakam at a local player’s camp. After his second year at the camp, he was asked to attend the Basketball Without Borders camp. Once he arrived at the camp, Siakam garnered attention for his athleticism, even though he lacked any real training in basketball. Mbah a Moute became his mentor and helped him move to the United States. After settling in Lewisville, Texas, Siakam worked to improve his basketball skills, while attending a prep school. He was not initially eligible to play for the school and when he was able to play, he was not a stand-out player. Regardless, Siakam was pursued by New Mexico State University, which kept several spots on their roster for foreign-born players.
Siakam chose to attend New Mexico State University, however, he ended up redshirting his freshman year due to an injury. In his redshirt freshman year, he worked his way into the starting lineup and eventually was named WAC Freshman of the Year (2015). In his sophomore year, he averaged more than twenty points per game and was named WAC Player of the Year (2016) and AP Honorable mention All-American (2016). He decided to forgo his remaining collegiate eligibility and declare for the NBA Draft.
In the 2016 NBA Draft, Siakam was drafted by the Toronto Raptors, who signed him to a rookie contract. He made his NBA debut in the Raptors’ first game of the season. Though he had a good game, Siakam would spend the season going back and forth between the Raptors and their D league affiliate, the Raptors 905. That season he helped the Raptors 905 to win the D League title and he was awarded the D-League Finals MVP for his 23 points and 9 rebound series performance.
In the following season, Siakam proved to be a valuable bench player for the Raptors and even recorded a career-high 20-point game against Golden State. In the same season, his averages improved by more than three full points, a whole rebound, and a whole assist per game. Siakam proved to have a very high basketball IQ and showed that he could guard all five positions, as well as learn to project more confidence.
Siakam improved by leaps and bounds in his third year in the league. He averaged more than 16 points per game with almost seven rebounds and three assists. He also set a new career-high in points scored per game and was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week in November. He had additional stand-out games against the Wizards, the Magic, and the 76ers, cementing the best season of his career by far. Siakam’s skills would help his team to the NBA finals, where they won the first NBA Championship in their team’s history. Siakam was named the NBA’s Most Improved Player for that season and his team signed him with a four-year deal worth over 130 million dollars.
He started the next season with a 34-point game, which set yet another benchmark in his career. Statistically speaking, this season would be the best season of Siakam’s career. He recorded a double-double against the Sacramento Kings, a 44-point game against the Pelicans, a 35-point game against the Jazz, and another 35-point game against the Suns. He was invited to play in the NBA All-Star game and was named to the All-NBA Second Team.
During the 2020-2021 NBA season, Siakam set another career-high record, having 44 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, and one steal in a game against the Wizards. For the season, he averaged almost 23 points per game, along with more than seven rebounds and four assists per game.
His basketball skills and statistics have continued to improve and Siakam is still an active player for the Toronto Raptors in the NBA.
