Sixers agree to 1-year deal with PF Amir Johnson

Serge Ibaka Miami Heat

Point guard Kyle Lowry, the fifth-ranked free agent by CBS Sports, has chose to stay with the Toronto Raptors, his decision coming only hours after Serge Ibaka agreed to a new deal with Toronto on Sunday morning.

Lowry announced on The Players' Tribune site Sunday that he will re-sign with the Raptors, adding that it was an easy decision.

He will re-sign with them for three years and $100 million according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Nonetheless, Lowry has remained productive at age 31, averaging 22.4 points and 7 assists per game last season. His 11.3 nERD was 16th in the National Basketball Association and sixth-best among point guards (James Harden, Isaiah Thomas, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul).


Serge Ibaka is headed back to the Raptors. Despite all the other maneuvering, the most important piece of information the Toronto Raptors can share with their fans is that a new Kyle Lowry contract is in place. Ibaka agreed to terms on a three-year contract worth $65 million, a person with knowledge of the negotiations told AP, speaking on condition of anonymity because the deal can not be signed until the NBA's off-season moratorium ends on Thursday.

There are also rumours of Toronto discussing a trade with IN that would see Cory Joseph head to the Pacers IN order to free up cap space. Re-signing Ibaka and Lowry suggests Toronto will be back in the hunt for a top-four seed in the Eastern Conference next season.

"I have an opportunity to play for a great team, a great organization and great city so I'm very excited", Ibaka had said before his first appearance as a Raptor.

"I'm sad that may people will have read a rumor and will have made a false assumption that can last forever, while they maybe will not read what I'm writing now".
