No. 12: Chris Boucher

Season Win Shares: 0.4          Current Cap-figure: $0 (Two-Way Contract)

Also on a two-way contract, Chris Boucher offers a similar resume to that of Loyd, only slightly improved.

In his time with the Raptors, a mere 11 games, Boucher has played only 4.7 minutes per night, scoring 3.5 per game in those minutes. The one area where Boucher offers additional help for the franchise is along the frontcourt.

For a team that has dealt with the loss of a big to trade (Jakob Poeltl) and a pair of big men coping with various injuries (Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas), Boucher has been a good depth piece.

Alongside Greg Monroe, Boucher was called upon to aid the Raptors in the face of injuries, providing the team with depth in their rotation in the paint.

Formerly a member of the Oregon Ducks, the 25-year-old Boucher has experimented a pair of top-level organizations in his stint. First with the Golden State Warriors, and now with the Raptors.

Though he failed to garner playing time with the former, Boucher has also shown flashes with the Raptors’ G-League affiliate, much the same way Loyd has.

In his 33.4 minutes per night with the 905, Boucher has registered averages of 28.4 points and 11.1 rebounds. Though it is at a lower level, the big man has shown flashes that enabled the franchise to want to bring him into the fold.

His massive wingspan has aided the teams’ defense down low as well in limited minutes:


Though he is merely a developmental piece with the ability to fill in when desperate times befall the Raptors, Boucher does have flashes of brilliance.

At a similar salary of $77,250, Boucher has given the team a much-needed boost, with a pocket change price tag.
