Toronto Raptors Cut Ties with Centre Alex Len, Open One Roster Spot
Whether it was due to Chris Boucher’s budding stardom or just a by-product of poor play, the Toronto Raptors have decided to waive center Alex Len.
The big man missed the team’s last three games due to the league’s health and safety protocol.

The Raptors originally signed the former lottery pick over the offseason to a one-year, $2.3 million deal. Len would go onto appear in seven games for the Raptors, averaging 2.3 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks in 10.9 minutes of playing time per contest. Len had his best game with the Raptors in a win against the New York Knicks on New Years Eve, when he posted 11 points on 3-for-3 shooting from the perimeter.
The Raptors added Len in lieu of losing Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka to free agency and will now have one available spot on their roster.
