Raptors 905 forward Chris Boucher was selected MVP and Defensive Player of the Year in the G League. He is the first player to win both awards in the same season. Boucher, who signed a two-way contract with the Toronto Raptors last October before having it converted to a standard NBA contract in February, averaged 27.2 points, 11.4 rebounds and 4.1 blocked shots and shot 51.0 percent from the field in 28 games with Raptors 905. Raptors 905 went 20-8 with him in the lineup and 29-21 overall.
