Addition: Chris Boucher – Toronto (Waivers)
Substitution: Matiss Thybulle – Philadelphia
Matiss Thybulle was drafted late in the fourteenth round and was selected to be a bench player who contributed when he could. Thybulle disappointed us and never got into the starting lineup, having scored less than two points.
Chris Boucher became available and thanks to a 56.50 point game became a hot commodity. We used our first waiver wire pick to select the Raptor.
