Boucher and Miller signed full NBA contracts with the Raptors midway through last season and were a part of the playoff roster, however their playing time was limited to garbage time during the postseason. Loyd remained on his two-way deal with Toronto and was not included on the playoff roster although he was a significant part of their preparations, emulating the team’s opponents on the scout team during practice.
A few other additions have been reported to this point, as well; undrafted free agents Jessie Govan and Matt Morgan as well as free agent Darius Thompson will suit up in Las Vegas. Govan and Morgan are both four year seniors, while Thompson spent the past season playing for Dutch side ZZ Leiden.
The roster as of today is as follows:
