Ahead of the 2018-19 NBA season, Montreal native Chris Boucher told NBA Canada that "I've always felt like I had a place in the NBA."

He now has it.

According to a report from The Athletic's Shams Charania, the 6-foot-10 centre and the Raptors have reached an agreement to convert his two-way contract into a multiyear deal.

As a two-way player, Boucher spent the majority of the first five months of this seson with Raptors 905 and was permitted to spend up to 45 days with the Toronto Raptors.

Over 23 games with Raptors 905, the 26-year-old averaged 27.6 points, 11.1 rebounds and 4.0 blocks while shooting over 50 percent from the field. On Dec. 13, Boucher set the Raptors 905 single-game scoring record with 47 points to go along with nine rebounds and eight blocks.

At the time of signing, Boucher has appeared in 16 NBA games with the Raptors, averaging 3.9 points and 1.8 rebounds while shooting 45.7 percent from the field and 39.1 percent from 3-point range. He scored an NBA career-high nine points in a late-December loss to the Orlando Magic.

The first time Boucher will have an opportunity to take the floor as a full-time member of the Toronto Raptors is Monday night when the team hosts the Brooklyn Nets.
