The Toronto Raptors have waived DeAndre' Bembry, Rodney Hood and Paul Watson, the team has announced.

The Raptors signed Bembry to a two-year deal last offseason. He appeared in 51 games with the Raptors last season, 12 of which he started in, averaging 5.7 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists.

The Raptors acquired Hood from the Portland Trail Blazers as part of the Norman Powell deal at last season's trade deadline. According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Hood is set to join the Milwaukee Bucks on a one-year deal.

Watson first joined the Raptors on a two-way contract and signed a standard contract before the 2020-21 season. Injuries limited him to 27 games last season but he flashed his potential with a career-best 30-point showing on 8-for-11 shooting from 3-point range in a win over the Orlando Magic on April 16, 2021.

Bembry and Watson had non-guarantees in their contracts for the 2021-22 season while Hood had a partial guarantee.
