Chris Boucher News
Toronto Raptors forward Chris Boucher had a huge game in a 111-108 win over the Hornets. Boucher scored 25 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two triples, two blocks, and a steal in 30 minutes. Teammate Aron Baynes technically started the game but played just eight minutes to Boucher's 30, as the latter thoroughly out-played the former. The 28-year-old has been a do-it-all big man for the Raptors, who need to stop playing games and start him already. Over the past four contests, Boucher has averaged 20.8 points, 8.5 rebounds, 3.5 blocks, 2.7 triples, and 1.3 assists per game. The third-year big man has been an absolute steal for fantasy managers with no end in sight to his breakout campaign. He'll run it back against the Hornets on Saturday.
The Toronto Raptors have re-signed center Chris Boucher to a two-year, $13.5 million deal. With Serge Ibaka and Marc Gasol gone, Boucher will be expected to step into a larger role this season. In 62 games last year, Boucher averaged just 13.2 minutes per game, so take his 6.6 points and 4.5 boards per contest with a grain of salt, as an additional 10-plus minutes per game likely makes Boucher a fantasy relevant player.
Toronto Raptors forward Chris Boucher has been extended a qualifying offer by the organization. That means that Boucher is a restricted free agent, so the team can match any offer he receives. Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka are unrestricted free agents and are allowed to sign anywhere they want. Boucher could find himself with significant playing time in Toronto, assuming both Gasol and Ibaka sign elsewhere. Boucher could have late-round draft appeal, but wait and see what the Raptors do this offseason.
Toronto Raptors forward Chris Boucher scored a career-high 24 points with six rebounds, three triples, and two blocks in a 118-102 loss to the Boston Celtics on Christmas Day. Boucher's Christmas present has come in the form of more minutes, thanks to injuries to Pascal Siakam (groin), Norman Powell (shoulder), and Marc Gasol (hamstring). Over his last three games, Boucher has averaged 16.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 6.3 made free throws, and 2.7 blocks in 22 minutes per game. The 26-year-old will continue to see more playing time for at least the next week, making him a good waiver wire add. Boucher and the Raptors will next play the Celtics again on Saturday night.
