Lowry announces he’s staying with Toronto
Kyle Lowry is staying home, saying he wants to finish what he started in Toronto.
Lowry announced on The Players’ Tribune site Sunday that he will resign with the Raptors, adding that it was an easy decision. Lowry will sign a three-year deal worth $100 million, according to a person with knowledge of the negotiations who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because terms were not revealed publicly. “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?” Lowry wrote. “And like I said - to me, that was an easy decision. The answer is yes.”
The three-time All-Star averaged 22.4 points and 7.0 assists last season for the Raptors, who also struck a deal to retain forward Serge Ibaka earlier Sunday.
