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.
