The Toronto Raptors have waived centre Alex Len after just seven games, the team announced Tuesday.

The bruising big man had fallen down the team's depth chart at centre after signing the former fifth-overall pick to a one-year deal in the off-season.

Len -- who's also had stops in Sacramento and Atlanta after being drafted by Phoenix in 2013 -- averaged 2.3 points and 1.6 rebounds in 10.8 minutes for the Raptors.

The 27-year-old had missed the team's last three games, the first for personal reasons and the latter two because he was in the NBA's health and safety protocol.
