Raptors sign Chris Boucher, Malcolm Miller to National Basketball Association contracts

Raptors Sign Chris Boucher To NBA Contract

Chris Boucher, who had been splitting time between Toronto and the Raptors 905 on a two-way deal, has signed a multi-year National Basketball Association contract that will convert the young centre into a full-time National Basketball Association player.

Terms of either deal were not disclosed although Shams Charania of The Athletic did report the deal to be a multi-year contract.

The 26-year-old had originally signed a two-way contract on October 12, 2018 that had him shuttling back and forth between the Raptors 905 in Mississauga and the senior club.

Tokyo 2020 Olympic medals will be made from recycled devices
The target for bronze was met last June, while the organisers had more than 90% of the gold and 85% of the silver by October. At the Rio Olympics in 2016, recycled metals were used for medals but for less than 30 per cent of gold and silver.

The Raptors now have 11 players on their roster, and will need to get up to 14 players by February 24th.

Toronto figures to be busy in the coming weeks as the team still has two roster spots to fill, with approximately 12 days to do so. Miller sustained the injury while playing for the Raptors' entry at NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. He missed the first 28 games with a torn labrum in his right shoulder. In six games with Raptors 905 this season, the 25-year-old averaged 8.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 22.8 minutes per game.

Miller, a 6-foot-7 forward, appeared in 15 games with the Toronto Raptors in the 2017-18 season; he earned four starts and scored a career-high eight points in a win over the Knicks in March 2018.
