Meanwhile, fellow Canadian Brissett, averaged 1.9 points and 1.4 rebounds in 7.1 minutes across 19 games with the raptors. The 22-year-old spent most of the season with their G League affiliate, the Raptors 905, where he averaged 15.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

The move to extend a qualifying offer to French guard Nando De Colo allows the Raptors to retain his rights. The 33-year-old last played in the NBA in 2014 for Toronto and is currently playing for Fenerbahçe of the Turkish Basketball Super League and the EuroLeague after playing four seasons with CSKA Moscow.

Per TSN's Josh Lewenberg, forward Malcolm Miller, who had played with the Raptors for the past three seasons, was not given a qualifying offer.
