Heat Interested in Veteran Big Man Serge Ibaka

Posted July 03, 2017

Lowry announced his decision on The Players' Tribune. Per The Vertical's Shams Charania, Lowry's contract will be worth $100 million over three seasons, which averages just about $33 million per season. He also added 7.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game while reaching the All-Star Game for the third straight 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). 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. "I was not born in the jungle", Ibaka said. The new deal for Serge will average out to be over $21.5 million per season.

On Saturday, the Raptors missed out on re-signing P.J. Tucker, who is a power forward they traded for last season before their playoff run.

"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?" It ensures that the Raptors aren't weighed down by Ibaka's contract for too long, seeing as it expires at the same time DeMar DeRozan has a player option in 2020. He's an unrestricted free agent now, but teams are questioning his value after he wasn't able to boost the Raptors into Eastern Conference contention. Tucker agreed to a four-year, $32 million deal with Houston, according to reports.

In a statement issued after the vote, Trump urged the Senate "to take up these bills, pass them, and send them to my desk". Goodnow also said that even if the law were passed, its fight would be "far from over".

ESPN first reported the terms of the Ibaka deal.

Ibaka was dealt from the Orlando Magic to the Toronto Raptors midseason previous year, and the Raptors are expected to make a strong push to keep the 6-foot-10 power forward.
