NBA rumors: Ex-Warriors forward signs multiyear contract with Raptors

Programming note: Watch the pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders today at 4 p.m. PT, streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Feb. 10, 2019 forever will be remembered as a memorable day for one former Warriors forward.

Chris Boucher -- who was on a two-way contract with Golden State last season -- agreed to a multiyear deal with the Toronto Raptors on Sunday, league sources told The Athletic's Shams Charania.

The 26-year-old was on a two-way deal with the Raptors, so the franchise converted the agreement to a full NBA contract (similar to what the Warriors did with Quinn Cook before last year).

Boucher has appeared in 16 NBA games this season. He scored eight points last week against the Clippers.

The Oregon product has dominated the G League to the tune of 27.7 points, 11.2 rebounds and 4.2 blocks in 23 games, while shooting 51 percent overall and 31 percent from deep.

Boucher was slated to face the Santa Cruz Warriors on Wednesday, but it appears he won't be with Raptors 905 much moving forward.

In 20 appearances with Santa Cruz last season, he averaged 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.1 blocks. The big man didn't make his debut until Jan. 17 as he was recovering from a torn ACL.

Golden State waived Boucher in late June and ended up signing Damion Lee and Marcus Derrickson to two-way contracts.

No word yet on if Boucher and Patrick McCaw will sit near each other on Toronto's team bus ...

Magic Johnson can't believe Kevin Durant wasn't happy with Warriors

Magic Johnson can't believe Kevin Durant wasn't happy with Warriors

Kevin Durant came to the Warriors in 2016 in pursuit of a family and NBA titles.

Durant got the hardware in his first two seasons with the Warriors.

Despite all the winning the Warriors were able to do with Durant, he never quite felt like he was part of a family. It's quite possible that had something to do with the fact that he refused to commit long-term to the Warriors. It's hard for a family to accept you when you have one foot in the house and the other on the front porch.

After three seasons in the Bay Area, Durant left this offseason for the Brooklyn Nets, and he revealed to the Wall Street Jounal last week that he never felt like one of the guys.

NBA legend Magic Johnson can't begin to fathom Durant's logic.

"KD, I hope that he finds happiness," Johnson said on ESPN's First Take on Friday. "If you can't find happiness at Golden State, where are you going to find it at? First of all, give Steph Curry a lot of credit for saying 'I'm a two-time MVP, I'm willing to take a backseat because I want to win.' Give Klay Thompson a lot of credit, because you know who's game suffered the most? Klay Thompson. He used to get a lot more touches before KD got there and he said 'I'm OK with that as long as we win a championship.' Draymond Green, even he had to take a backseat.

"So, Kevin, if you won back-to-back titles, you won MVP of the Finals as well, where are you going to find happiness at? I just want him to find happiness because when I look at Michael Jordan, when I look at Kobe Bryant, this brother, Kevin Durant, is one of the greatest scorers we've seen in NBA history, so I just want him to be happy. I just don't know where he's going to find it at if he can't find it at Golden State."

We imagine every single Warriors fan feels the same way as Magic.

Unlike Thunder fans, Warriors fans don't hold any ill will towards Durant. They're just puzzled by his decision to leave. He had everything he wanted in the Bay Area and Golden State could have offered more money. Yet he still decided to leave.

But maybe Durant will never be happy in the same spot for too long. It's possible that in three years, Brooklyn fans find themselves wondering why Durant wasn't happy, just like Warriors fans are right now.

This doesn’t look like the walk of a man who suffered a torn Achilles tendon just 12 weeks ago.

Former Warriors star Kevin Durant was seen climbing into a van in New York City on Thursday, and he was showing no signs of trauma from his season-ending Achilles tear suffered in Game 5 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

Durant moved on from Golden State and signed with the Brooklyn Nets in July, and the 30-year-old appears to be enjoying his new city. He recently was seen in a Nets uniform for the first time since joining the team, although he is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season while he recovers from his Achilles tear.

The good news for KD is at least the rehabilitation process appears to be proceeding smoothly.
