The Raptors and center Chris Boucher have agreed to a two-year, $13.5 million deal, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Boucher was a restricted free agent but Toronto ultimately didn't need to match a competing offer to retain him. The 27-year-old big man will have a major role this season, joining newly-signed Aron Baynes to replace the outgoing duo of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka. Fantasy managers shouldn't sleep on Boucher, who notched per-36-minute stats last season of 18.1 points (47.2% FGs, 78.4% FTs), 12.2 boards, 2.7 blocks and 1.0 steals. He also shot 32.2% from deep and any improvement from the arc would be huge in both reality and fantasy. Yesterday 8:05 pm (EST)
