Montrealer Chris Boucher back with the Raptors, according to ESPN

TORONTO — The Toronto Raptors would keep Montreal’s Chris Boucher, who was a free agent, in their ranks.

Citing his agent Sam Permut, ESPN reported that the six-foot-nine has agreed to a three-year, $35.25m deal.

In the NBA, the autonomy period began at 6:00 p.m. Thursday.

The 29-year-old averaged 9.4 points and 6.2 rebounds last season.

In his fourth season with Toronto, Boucher led the team with 75 blocks.

The Raptors signed Boucher before the 2018-19 season; he had appeared in only one game the previous season, with Golden State.

Boucher mostly played with the 905 Raptors initially, being named the G League’s Most Valuable Player in 2019.

The Raptors would also retain the services of 34-year-old veteran Thad Young, who would pocket $16 million over two years.

In 26 appearances with the club, Young averaged 6.3 points and 4.4 rebounds.

He was acquired from San Antonio in the trade involving Goran Dragic.

“I am very grateful, wrote Young on Twitter, Thursday evening. ‘We The North’, let’s go. »
