The Toronto Raptors have waived Freddie Gillespie and Reggie Perry. Toronto now has 18 players on their preseason roster, with one waiver remaining to be regular season roster compliance.
Gillespie signed with the Raptors late in the 2020-21 season. After two 10 Day contracts, Gillespie inked a two-year deal with Toronto. In 20 appearances (two starts), Gillespie averaged 5.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and one block in 19.6 minutes per game.
Gillespie had $50,000 of his 2021-22 contract guaranteed. If he's not claimed off waivers, that amount will go on Toronto's books.
Perry played his rookie season on a Two-Way contract with the Brooklyn Nets. In 26 games, Perry averaged 3.0 points and 2.8 rebounds in mostly mop-up duty for the Nets. Perry's deal with Toronto was a non-guaranteed training camp contract.
Perry and Gillespie are both candidates to play for Raptors 905 of the G League as Affiliate Players.
