Boucher has signed a two-year, $13.5 million deal to stay with the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Boucher is coming off a breakout campaign with the Raptors where he played a pivotal role off the bench, averaging 6.6 points and 4.5 rebounds in 13.2 minutes. With the Raptors signing Aron Baynes, Boucher will likely remain a backup for the time being. However, the high-flying center could potentially land some starts as Baynes has missed 71 combined games over the past two seasons due to injuries.
Boucher contributed 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds and four blocks in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 125-121 win over the 76ers. Boucher finished with a career high in made threes and matched his career high in blocks while putting forth another stellar performance from a scoring and rebounding perspective. It remains to be seen how involved Boucher will be come playoff time, but he's likely to see significant time once again during Friday's regular season finale versus Denver.
Boucher scored 25 points (9-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 boards, two assists, two blocks, and two steals in 29 minutes of a 114-106 win against the Bucks on Monday. Boucher set career bests in points and minutes against the Bucks. The second year man took advantage of extended playing time due to Toronto holding back some of its starters. The performance shows he can be a force when given the opportunity, but he's played a total of 22 minutes combined in his team's other five games since the restart. He'll face the 76ers on Wednesday.
Boucher managed just one block in six minutes during Monday's 101-92 victory over Utah. Despite the fact Marc Gasol (rest) was given the night off, Boucher was barely in the rotation Monday. After a big night last Tuesday, Boucher has come back to earth with a thud and can safely be left on waivers in almost every format.
Boucher finished with 19 points (5-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 15 rebounds, two steals and a block in 28 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Suns. Needless to say, the 15 boards were easily a career high for Boucher, who managed his fourth double-double of the 2019-20 campaign. Though he's held a consistent rotational role for much of the last month, the 26-year-old's seen his minutes fluctuate on a game-to-game basis. When allowed minutes, Boucher's thriving, but his inconsistent workload makes it difficult to play him with any confidence in the majority of formats.
