Chris Boucher has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $13.5-million deal to stay with the Toronto Raptors, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The deal offers further clarity as to how the Raptors' front court will look next season.

Boucher's decision to return comes on the heels of Marc Gasol reportedly finalizing a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Raptors bringing in free-agent centre Aron Baynes.

According to Blake Murphy of The Athletic, the second year of Boucher's deal is not guaranteed. Structuring the contract in such a way will maintain the Raptors' flexibility for next off-season.

The 27-year-old averaged 6.6 points, 4.5 rebounds and one block per game last season.
