Free agency has been a frenzy for the Toronto Raptors this weekend.

On Saturday, the Raptors re-signed Fred VanVleet, but lost Serge Ibaka to the LA Clippers. Then today, they added free agent centre Aron Baynes, but lost Marc Gasol to the LA Lakers.

Needing another big man to fill their roster, the Raptors have agreed to a two-year, $13.5 million contract with restricted free agent forward Chris Boucher, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 27-year-old Montreal product had the best season of his short NBA career with the Raptors last season, averaging 6.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.0 blocks in just 13.2 minutes per game in the 62 contests he suited up for.
