The Raptors have waived center Alex Len and created a standard roster spot, the team announced in a release.
Len, 27, was the No. 5 overall draft pick in 2013 and has also spent time with the Suns and Hawks. He appeared in seven of the Raptors’ first 13 games — though he did sign a guaranteed deal in free agency this offseason. That made the move somewhat of a surprise.
Len has also missed some time recently for personal reasons. The Raptors have listed him out due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols as well.
His salary of $2.3 million salary will remain on Toronto’s salary cap unless he is claimed off waivers. He will become an unrestricted on Thursday afternoon.
