Chris Boucher’s rookie season in the NBA was marred by injury, limiting him to just 1 minute of action in mop-up duty in a game in March for the Golden State Warriors.
Now it appears that the Warriors are moving on from Boucher, the former Oregon standout who was a shot-blocking menace for the Ducks during his two seasons in college.
Sources: The Golden State Warriors are waiving forward Chris Boucher, who signed a two-way NBA deal after the 2017 NBA draft. Boucher will be an unrestricted free agent.

The 6-foot-10 Boucher went undrafted after the 2016-17 season, mostly due to suffering a knee injury in March that kept him out of the NCAA Tournament as Oregon reached the Final Four. The Warriors signed him to a two-way deal that guaranteed him $50,000 and he spent nearly the entire 2017-18 season with Golden State’s G-League team, appearing in 20 games and averaging 11.8 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game.
At Oregon, Boucher averaged 12 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.7 blocks per game with a school-record 110 blocks as a junior in 2015-16.
