Boucher averaged 10.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game with the Raptors in Summer League. He had his best outing in a loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, in which he finished with 18 points, eight rebounds and four blocks in 23 minutes of action.
"It was nice," Boucher said about getting to play with the Raptors. "Toronto, Canada, is back home for me. It felt good just to put the Raptors on my jersey. It's a learning process. I feel like I got a lot better. I didn't know what to expect when I got here. I definitely got better. I know there's still things I can fix, but that's what you're here for, to learn how to fix the stuff you're not good at and get better at everything."
After going undrafted in 2017, Boucher signed a two-way contract with the Golden State Warriors. He appeared in one game with the Warriors and 20 games with their G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors. Boucher averaged 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks per game in the NBA's minor league.
