Gets qualifying offer from Raps
As expected, the Raptors will give themselves matching rights on Trent, who will become a restricted free agent this offseason. All indications are that Toronto aims to keep Trent around, though that could change if another team swoops in with a well-above-market offer. After coming over from Portland at the deadline, Trent appeared in 17 games and posted averages of 16.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.1 steals while drilling 2.6 threes per game at a 35.5 percent clip.

Won't play for Team Canada
Boucher was supposedly healthy at the close of the regular season for Toronto, but he didn't crack the late-season rotations as Toronto was not trying to make the playoffs. The 28-year-old missed nine games late in the season due to a sprained left knee, which is the injury he referenced in his Twitter post. "To all my Team Canada fans asking why I'm not on the roster- I'm disappointed that I won't be playing this summer but I've decided to take the time to continue rehabbing my knee to make sure I'm 100% next season," Boucher said. The injury shouldn't continue to hamper him in the 2021-22 season.

Dishes out career-high seven dimes
The 24-year-old has been on fire over his past three games, averaging 24.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 3.7 three-pointers and 2.0 steals in that span. Johnson had totaled just 14 points over his previous five games before his recent three-game hot streak, so it's safe to say he was able to take advantage of his extra minutes and usage with both Kyle Lowry (rest) and Fred VanVleet (rest) out of the lineup. The sixth-year forward enters the 2021 offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and he'll hope to parlay his late-season success into a new NBA contract.
