Just dropping a line to update yesterday’s news that Fred VanVleet has won the Toronto Raptors’ 15th roster spot. The team made that official Saturday afternoon, releasing Drew Crawford, Brady Heslip, E.J. Singler, Jarrod Uthoff, and Yanick Moreira.
Heslip, Singler, and Uthoff are all headed to Raptors 905. The hope and expectation is that Moreira will, as well. Crawford is expected to return overseas.
In the smallest of other notes, Axel Toupane, cut by the Denver Nuggets last week, remains undecided on his plans for 2016-17. The 905 hold his rights if he opts for the D-League route.
