NBA rumors: Ex-Warriors forward signs multiyear contract with Raptors originally appeared on nbcsportsbayarea.com
Feb. 10, 2019 forever will be remembered as a memorable day for one former Warriors forward.
Chris Boucher — who was on a two-way contract with Golden State last season — agreed to a multiyear deal with the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, league sources told The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
The 26-year-old was on a two-way deal with the Raptors, so the franchise converted the agreement to a full NBA contract (similar to what the Warriors did with Quinn Cook before last year).
Boucher has appeared in 16 NBA games this season. He scored eight points last week against the Clippers.
The Oregon product has dominated the G League to the tune of 27.7 points, 11.2 rebounds and 4.2 blocks in 23 games, while shooting 51 percent overall and 31 percent from deep.
Boucher was slated to face the Santa Cruz Warriors on Wednesday, but it appears he won’t be with Raptors 905 much moving forward.
In 20 appearances with Santa Cruz last season, he averaged 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. The big man didn’t make his debut until Jan. 17 as he was recovering from a torn ACL.
No word yet on if Boucher and Patrick McCaw will sit near each other on Toronto’s team bus …
