Ellenson, Johnson, and Brissett Cut by the Raptors Ahead of Season

The Toronto Raptors are ready to go.

As they closed out their three-game preseason with a loss to the defending Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat, Toronto made some final cuts to finalize their 2020-21 regular season roster.

This morning, the team has officially waived Henry Ellenson, Alize Johnson, and Canadian Oshae Brissett. Ellenson last played for the Raptors 905 in the G League while Alize Johnson received a camp invite after spending the entirety of his young career with the Indiana Pacers. Brissett played 19 games for the Raptors last year, but spent the majority of his season in the G League on a two-way contract.

The Raptors roster is now set at 15 with two two-way players.

The team sees the return of 11 members of their last year’s roster as well as seven from their championship roster in 2018-19. Most notably, Fred VanVleet is back, fresh off signing his new four-year contract. Meanwhile Paul Watson was converted into a full-time member of the main roster as rookie Jalen Harris and Yuta Watanabe look poised to claim two-way player status.

The Raptors depth chart now looks as follows:

  • PG: Kyle Lowry, Fred VanVleet, Malachi Flynn, Patrick McCaw
  • SG: Norman Powell, Terrence Davis, Matt Thomas, Paul Watson, Jalen Harris (two-way)
  • SF: OG Anunoby, DeAndre’ Bembry,  Yuta Watanabe (two-way)
  • PF: Pascal Siakam, Stanley Johnson
  • C: Aron Baynes, Chris Boucher, Alex Len

The Raptors will now shift their focus on the regular season as they are set to kick things off on December 23 against the New Orleans Pelicans.
