Kyle Lowry re-signs with Toronto Raptors

The #Toronto Raptors announced Sunday evening, that #Kyle Lowry has made a decision to stay with the team when he signed a#new deal for three years worth $100 million, according to ESPN.

Lowry says: "I'm coming back to Toronto because my heart is telling me that it's home". "And all of those roads..." Hill reportedly turned down a renegotiate-and-extend offer from the Jazz back in February, and the team probably has less room for his asking price and more leverage in negotiations now that they've traded for Ricky Rubio, who can presumably do a reasonable job of replacing Hill in the starting lineup.

Lowry agreed to a new three-year, $100 million deal, ESPN.com reported. "That's all I've thought about right now".

"I want a ring", he said in May.

Lowry opted out of the final year of his contract with the Raptors in May.

There was little doubt that either player would sign with another team, but what this means is that the Raptors can continue to be top contenders in the Eastern Conference for the immediate future.

Bulls sign Justin Holiday to 2-year, $9M deal
Justin did say recently that he would like to play with his brother, Jrue Holiday, so maybe the Pelicans are involved as well. Preparing to enter his fifth year in the NBA, Holiday is a bit of a nomad in his time in the league.

"I don't think we've reached our true potential", Lowry wrote.

Lowry and DeRozan led the Raptors to the 2015 Eastern Conference finals, where they took eventual National Basketball Association champion Cleveland to six games.

The 27-year-old Ibaka, acquired in the deal that sent Terrence Ross to Orlando, averaged 14.2 points and 6.8 rebounds in 23 games with the Raptors.

But Lowry has reinvented his playing profile to account for changes of the modern game; a point guard who shoots a league-best * a href="http://stats.nba.com/players/pullup/#!?Season=2016-17&SeasonType=Regular%20Season&PerMode=Totals&CF=PULL_UP_FG3A*GE*200&sort=PULL_UP_FG3_PCT&dir=1" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" *42.2 percent on a high number of off-dribble three-pointers is bound to age gracefully.

Tucker won't be back with the Raptors next season, as reports had the gritty defensive specialist agreeing to a deal with the Houston Rockets.
