Raptors To Release Dwight Buycks

The Toronto Raptors have decided to release point guard Dwight Buycks within the next two days, before his contract guarantee date on Monday, league sources told RealGM.

Buycks averaged 19.7 points and 4.3 assists in the Las Vegas Summer League, ranking sixth in scoring and seventh in assists. The Raptors grew fond of Buycks’ play a season ago and received trade interest from other NBA teams for the 25-year-old.

Several teams are expected to pursue Buycks in free agency.

Buycks went undrafted out of Marquette University in 2011, and the 6-foot-3 guard played overseas for two seasons before an impressive showing with the Raptors in summer league last year as a tenacious, swift player. In 14 regular season games for Toronto, he averaged 3.1 points and 1.6 rebounds.
