The Toronto Raptors waived veteran Canadian centre Jamaal Magloire on Saturday.

Magloire, 34, appeared in 34 games for the Raptors last season. He averaged 1.2 points, 3.3 rebounds and 11 minutes a game.

The 12-year NBA veteran did not see any game action during the pre-season. The six-foot-11 Toronto native was the first Canadian-born player to play for the Raptors.

The team now has 15 players on its roster.

Toronto opens the regular season on Wednesday night against the visiting Indiana Pacers.
