It is time to move on.

Thank you Khem for playing a vital role the last 2 years trying to make the playoffs. Couldnt have done it without him.

Khem played hard, made the players around him better.
Outplayed his contract, that is all you can ask.

Khem retired as best center on the roster. He was pleasure to watch.

He is a pro. Someone who worked hard. This should be the inspiring stories of all undrafted guys. Work hard and do your best. You can make it to the league with that

Great move for both parties. He’s not on our timeline but will help a team with his effort.

Not even close :lol:

But he was important for us and hustled his ass off. Was much needed the past few years but had regressed a bit as of late, I think if he has a defined role in Toronto he will excel.

Been very solid for us. Should find a spot in the nba for years to come. Time to tank and play our young guys so we had no choice.

I really loved Khem. He was exactly what he was, a solid backup center who plays hard. Definitely would be welcome on any team making a playoff run, sadly that is not us. Wish him nothing but the best!

I’ll miss Khem Birch, he was a great effort guy and proof that guys can make it in the league just doing the dirty work. Earned every penny he got paid, and probably deserved more. Good luck with Raptors!

Did anything and everything that was requested from him, stuck to the plan, and left everything on the court .... every time he stepped on it! Gotta love and appreciate that in a player! Wishing him the absolute best in his career!

A really important point. Birch was a major piece in the playoffs both years.

Solid role player who gave the team exactly what was needed and asked from him.

Wish him all the best with the Dino's and hope he thrives during the rest of his career and beyond.

great energy. One of those hardworking backup Cs Magic seem to always find.
Prediction day after Vuc, Gordon, Evan departure - most fans who are celebrating birth of new rebuild will be crying how rebuild is painful before 2022-23 season ends.
