Moreland was waived by the Raptors on Friday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Moreland didn't impress the Raptors' organization enough to earn a final roster spot. He played 805 minutes for the Pistons last season and may be able to latch on with another team to fill a deep bench spot.
Moreland finished with 12 points (6-8 FG), 12 rebounds, and three assists in 25 minutes during Thursday's 134-119 preseason victory over New Orleans.
Moreland came through with a nice double-double in 25 minutes during Thursday high-scoring victory over the Pelicans. Moreland had some flashes last season while playing for the Pistons and will hope to receive more of an opportunity playing for the Raptors. He appears to be ahead of Greg Monroe in the pecking order but is still a long way off having any real fantasy value.
Moreland had a career year with Detroit last season, playing in 67 games and averaging 2.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 12.0 minutes. While those numbers weren't overly impressive, he had previously played in 11 total games in two prior seasons, so his involvement was still encouraging nonetheless. Still, the Pistons opted to let him walk this season and Moreland will now head to training camp with Toronto. If he makes the team, Moreland would provide some depth up front, but he'd be highly unlikely to make a fantasy impact in most formats.
Moreland was waived by the Pistons on Sunday, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.
Moreland put together his best season as a professional in 2017-18 with the Pistons, playing a career-high 67 games while averaging 2.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.2 assists across 12.0 minutes. However, Detroit opted to add fellow big man Zaza Pachulia this offseason, so Moreland became expendable and has now been released. Considering he's a capable backup, Moreland should field plenty of interest on the open free agent market, though no matter where he ends up, the 6-foot-10 forward likely won't become relevant in fantasy leagues.
Moreland had 16 points (8-12 FG), 17 rebounds, four assists, four steals and four blocks in 40 minutes during Wednesday's 119-87 victory over the Bulls.
Moreland did his best Andre Drummond impression in Wednesday's thumping of the Bulls, recording multiple career-highs in the process. Drummond was resting and Moreland took full advantage, recording the second double-double of his career. He should find himself on the Pistons roster next season and despite his strong recent play, he is going to be second-fiddle to Drummond.
