29-Year-Old CenterC
Toronto Raptors
2021 Fantasy Outlook
The 2020-21 season was a breakout year for Boucher. After struggling for meaningful minutes during his first three seasons, Boucher delivered per game career highs last year in points (13.6), rebounds (6.7), blocks (1.9) and assists (1.1) over a career-best 24.2 minutes per game. The Raptors usually started either Aron Baynes or Khem Birch and then brought Boucher in off the bench. This year, Baynes is no longer with Toronto, so Boucher will battle Birch for minutes. Both centers are entering their age-29 season, so neither has an ideal timeline for the rebuilding Raptors. Over the summer, Toronto signed Birch to a three-year deal while Boucher has only one season remaining on his contract. So while the organization might be more committed to Birch, it's Boucher who delivers the gaudier stats. Boucher's 1.9 blocks per contest ranked fifth in the Association and he also drained a surprising 1.5 three-pointers per game last year. While Baynes has departed, Toronto acquired young big Precious Achiuwa in the sign-and-trade deal that sent Kyle Lowry to Miami. The 6-foot-8 Achiuwa will fight for minutes at both the four and the five. With Lowry gone, the Raptors should be looking for points from every position, which could aid Boucher's attempt to score more minutes. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Boucher was born in 1993 in Castries, St. Lucia. He is the son of Mary MacVane and Jean-Guy Boucher. At a young age, Boucher moved to the Cote-des-Neiges neighborhood in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. For high school, Boucher attended Damase Boulanger High School and Alma Academy in Alma, Quebec. In 2012-13, Boucher led Alma Academy to a 48-5 record as well as the NPSAA and Canadian Prep Championship. Chris Boucher played college basketball at three different institutions. In 2013-14, the lengthy center played one season at New Mexico Junior College, averaging 11.8 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Boucher then transferred to Northwest College in Wyoming, where, after the 2014-15 season, he was named the Spalding NJCAA Division I Player of the Year. In addition to per-game averages of 22.5 points and 11.8 rebounds for Northwest, his 4.7 blocks per game was third best in all of junior college. Boucher than transferred to the University of Oregon for his last two years of college ball and majored in sociology. As a junior, Boucher set a single-season school record with 110 blocks and was named to the Pac-12 All-Tournament team and Pac-12 All-Defensive Team. Boucher's senior season was cut short by a torn ACL in his left knee. The injury occurred during a Pac-12 semifinals game against California. As a senior, Boucher was again named to the Pac-12 All-Defensive Team after averaging 2.5 blocks and 0.4 steals per game.

Big double-double in Game 6
CToronto Raptors
April 29, 2022
Boucher amassed 25 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 9-10 FT), 10 rebounds and one block over 32 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 132-97 loss to Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
He led the Raptors in scoring, but the team's defense let them down as they bowed out of the postseason. The double-double was Boucher's only one in six playoff games this year, and he averaged 11.2 points, 5.8 boards, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 threes in 21.7 minutes against Philadelphia, albeit while shooting an impressive 61.9 percent from the floor. Boucher is an unrestricted free agent in the offseason.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Could be on block
CToronto Raptors
February 8, 2022
Boucher could be dealt at Thursday's trade deadline, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
The 29-year-old big has earned some praise from Raptors coach Nick Nurse with recent improvements in his play, particularly in boxing out the opposition on rebounds, but Boucher has an expiring contract that could be cashed in to help upgrade the roster elsewhere. With Toronto mainly looking to improve its bench depth, however, it could be tough to deal a player who has been a regular part of the rotation during the team's current six-game winning streak.
See All NBA Rumors
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2017
Boucher signed a two-year, $13.5 million contract this offseason to remain with the Raptors. The center is coming off a breakout campaign with the Raptors where he played a pivotal role off the bench, averaging 6.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 13.2 minutes. He also made 38 three-pointers at 32.2 percent. With the Raptors signing Aron Baynes, Boucher will likely remain a backup for the time being. However, Boucher could potentially land some starts as Baynes has missed 71 combined games over the past two seasons due to injuries. Plus, after also losing Serge Ibaka, the Raptors have a relatively thin frontline. If Boucher can find himself in a role of roughly 20 minutes per game between center and power forward, he should hold some fantasy relevance. When seeing 15-plus minutes last season, he averaged 12.4 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.6 blocks and 1.2 threes.
Compared to a 2017-18 rookie campaign in Golden State during which he played just one game, Boucher saw a huge increase in playing time last season. While that equated to participation in 28 games overall, Boucher still averaged just 5.8 minutes per contest. He churned out averages of 3.3 points and 2.0 rebounds, posting a 44.7 percent success rate from the floor, including 32.4 percent from three-point range. Boucher displayed above-average floor-stretching capability during his two college seasons at Oregon, shooting 33.9 and 35.0 percent from distance, respectively. He also turned in an excellent tenure in the Las Vegas Summer League in July, averaging 23.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks across 31.0 minutes over four games. Boucher was slated to continue his development during this month's FIBA World Cup, but he'll end up missing the tournament for personal reasons. Looking ahead to the 2019-20 season, Boucher projects to remain firmly behind both Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka on the depth chart at center. However, any injuries to either of the two veterans would certainly open up some opportunity for him. Additionally, with both Gasol and Ibaka slated for unrestricted free agency following the coming campaign, there should be a certain degree of motivation to prepare Boucher for a potential starting job, or a very expanded role at minimum, in the 2020-21 season.
After nabbing big man Jordan Bell in the second round of the draft in June, the Warriors decided to go back to the University of Oregon well to sign Boucher, who had served as Bell’s backup in the frontcourt last season. Much like Bell, the springy Boucher counts rim protection as his top skill, thanks in no small part to his 6-foot-10 frame and 7-foot-4 wingspan. Along with chipping in averages of 11.8 points and 6.1 rebounds per game, Boucher actually bested Bell for the team lead with 2.5 blocks per game as a senior. Unfortunately for Boucher, his college career came to a premature end during the Pac-12 tournament semifinals in March, when he suffered a torn ACL that required surgery. The procedure likely contributed to Boucher going unselected, but his two-way deal with the Warriors will allow him to move forward with his rehab under the supervision of the reigning NBA champs. Boucher will likely be sidelined for most, if not all, of the first half of the season, but if he’s able to reclaim some health and explosiveness upon returning from the injury, he could eventually carve out a spot in the Warriors’ frontcourt rotation. That’s unlikely to materialize in 2017-18, however, as Boucher’s appearances are expected to come almost exclusively in the G-League.
