Mon­trealer earns spot with Rap­tors

Regina Leader-Post - - SPORTS -

Canada’s Chris Boucher se­cured one of the Toronto Rap­tors’ two-way con­tracts. The 25-yearold for­ward from Mon­treal had nine points, two re­bounds and four blocks in 19 min­utes of ac­tion over four pre-sea­son games with the Rap­tors. The bat­tle for the Rap­tors’ sec­ond two-way con­tract — Toronto al­ready had Jor­dan Loyd picked for the first one — had been one of the big­gest sto­ries dur­ing camp. In­tro­duced a year ago, NBA teams are al­lowed to carry two ad­di­tional play­ers un­der two-way con­tracts, al­low­ing them to play for both the NBA team and its G League af­fil­i­ate, in Toronto’s case, the Rap­tors 905. Boucher beat out Deng Adel and Eric More­land for the two-way spot. They were both waived by Toronto Fri­day along with guards Kyle Collinsworth and Kay Felder.
