Raptors Will Keep Serge Ibake, Lose PJ Tucker, Stay Exactly The Same

Raptors Will Keep Serge Ibake, Lose PJ Tucker, Stay Exactly The Same

Plus, the market hasn't exactly unfolded in Lowry's favour and a return to the Raptors seems inevitable at this point. The Raptors took a step back from their 2016 conference finals appearance even with Ibaka on the roster, and to lose him or Lowry could mean falling further in the standings. "I was not born in the jungle", Ibaka said. Originally drafted 11th overall by Orlando, the Duke product has spent the last four years of his career with the Clippers. The new deal for Serge will average out to be over $21.5 million per season.

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.

Lowry's contract is a three-year deal worth $100 million, which serves as a healthy pay raise for the All-Star point guard. Meanwhile, P.J. Tucker, the other big acquisition the Raptors snagged at last season's trade deadline, will depart for Houston, having agreed to a four-year, $32 million contract.

"It was up to me to decide whether this thing we have - is it worth sticking around for, and running it back again, and seeing if we can take that next step?"

ESPN first reported the terms of the Ibaka deal.

Raptors fans will sleep easy knowing the best point guard in franchise history (sorry, Damon Stoudamire) is under contract for at least three more seasons. "What's sure is that, no matter what, nobody can take away from me the pride for my origins and the love that I have for basketball".

The Knicks will need a lot more than just a president to purge the stigma of being a dysfunctional and ingrate organization as they proved to be throughout last season, in the midst of many issues between their players and their front office.
