Toronto — The Toronto Raptors are their top free agent in Canada I trapped Chris Boucher.
The Raptors have agreed with the 6'9 Montreal Center on a three-year contract worth US $ 35.25 million, first reported by ESPN.
This move took place shortly after the NBA's free agent opened at 6 pm. Thursday's ET.
Boucher averaged 9.4 points and 6.2 rebounds per game last season, and 11.2 points and 5.8 rebounds in six playoff games against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Boucher first signed with the Raptors before the 2018-19 season after playing a match against the Golden State Warriors last year. The Canadian spent most of his time at the Raptors 905 in his first year in Toronto and was named both a G-League MVP and a top defensive player.
Three years later, he re-signed with the Raptors on a two-year contract worth US $ 13.5 million. This is the richest deal in NBA history by an undrafted Canadian player.
On Thursday night, Boucher posted a personal Raptors highlight reel on his Instagram account, "Toronto is home" and "Toronto, I'm back!".
The Raptors also recall veteran Thaddeus Young and agree to be 34 years old with a two-year contract worth US $ 16 million.
In 26 Raptors games, Young averaged 6.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists.
He was part of a package containing the disgruntled Goran Dragic and Raptors first round picks in exchange for San Antonio's second round picks and the subsequently abandoned Drew Eubanks. Acquired on the February trading deadline. ..
