Toronto Raptors Continue Offseason, Sign Alex Len to One-Year Deal

The Toronto Raptors aren’t done pouching players from the Atlanta Hawks 2019-20 roster.

A day after signing athletic defender DeAndre’ Bembry to a two-year, $4-million deal, the Raptors continued to add to their front court in lieu of the departure of Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka.

Today, the Raptors brought in big man Alex Len on a one-year deal according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The deal is reportedly worth $2.3-million and allows the Raptors to maintain cap flexibility for next offseason. The 27-year old Len was originally a lottery pick of the Phoenix Suns, being selected fifth overall, but has failed to live up to the high expectations. He is coming off a season in which he averaged 8.0 points and 4.8 rebounds per game across 55 games.

The Raptors starting front court is all but established with the recent signing of Aron Baynes, therefore it appears as though Len will be fighting for backup minutes against the re-signed Chris Boucher.

The 2020-21 roster continues to come together for the 2019 NBA champions.
