Serge Ibaka agrees to three-year deal to return to Toronto

03 July, 2017, 01:58 | Author: Roderick Gutierrez

Kyle Lowry has announced in The Players Tribune that he has chosen to remain with the Raptors.

Lowry reportedly signed a three-year deal worth US$100 million. The 31-year-old point guard fell off a cliff this past postseason, but he remains an elite fantasy option when healthy.

Theis, 25, 6-8, 243 pounds, a power forward/center, averaged 9.6 points and 4.6 rebounds for Brose Bamberg of Germany, while shooting 41 percent from 3-point range and 64.5 percent on two-point attempts.

On one hand, the new Kyle Lowry contract is a bit surprising, as many National Basketball Association rumors had stated that he really needed a fourth-year in any deal he received.

Whatever happens with the rest of the team, the Raptors know what they're getting in Ibaka after paying the fair price of Terrence Ross and a 2017 first-round pick for him at the February trade deadline. "I want to just get better, I want to have fun, I want to win a ring".


Although there was interest from both the Houston Rockets and Miami Heat, it felt like it was only a matter of time until the Raptors reached an agreement with Ibaka.

In his letter, Lowry wrote about his love for Toronto.

"When I saw (son) Karter's reaction, that's how I knew for sure this was right", he said. It's a minor detail on the surface, but for a cap-strapped team like the Raptors it matters greatly. "We'd have been leaving home". They've won 48, 49, 56, and 51 regular season games over the last four seasons, and there is no one left on the planet who any longer believes their potential is greater than what they've achieved.

In 56 games with Orlando last season, the 6-foot-10, 235-pound Ibaka averaged 15.1 points and 6.8 rebounds.

The news comes hours after Toronto's other key free agent Serge Ibaka agreed to a three-year deal with Toronto.
