Serge Ibaka sticking with Raptors, agrees to three-year, $65 million deal

Miami Heat Rumors: Heat Interested in Veteran Big Man Serge Ibaka

Lowry is coming off arguably the best year of his career, setting new highs with 22.4 points per game and a 46.4 field goal percentage.

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

Based on Toronto's current situation, I would guess that Lowry signs a three-year deal with the Raptors worth somewhere around $87 million. President Masai Ujiri has been a wizard navigating bringing back his top talent, ensuring they get paid, but not on crippling terms.

Perry Calls For 'Intellectual' Debate On Man's Role
He mistakingly labeled the United States as an energy exporter, correcting himself after checking his notes again. The industry consensus is that so far, natural gas is the driving force behind coal power plant closures.

He was one of the most-coveted point guards on the market this summer, perhaps only behind Golden State's Stephen Curry. An average of $21.66 million per year is a heck of a lot of money for a big man who doesn't move with almost the same explosiveness that he used to, neither possessing the same degree of shot-blocking tenacity or rebounding that he did during his earlier years in Oklahoma City.

The 27-year-old Ibaka was traded to Toronto from Orlando late last season.

Ibaka gave the Raptors 14.2 points per game as well, shooting 39.8 percent from 3-point range with 1.8 made triples a night.

Hot Stocks Report: NIKE, Inc. (NKE), Antares Pharma, Inc. (ATRS)
It improved, as 84 investors sold NKE shares while 443 reduced holdings. 161 funds opened positions while 382 raised stakes. Jefferies Group LLC restated a "buy" rating and set a $75.00 price objective on shares of Nike in a report on Wednesday.

It's unclear how much interest there really was outside of Toronto. The Raptors are 2-8 against the Cavs in the playoffs the last two seasons.

ESPN first reported that Ibaka will return to the Raptors and the Toronto Star later confirmed the news.

Ibaka, who's entering his ninth National Basketball Association season, has career averages of 12 points and 7.3 rebounds. Ibaka spent his first seven NBA seasons in Oklahoma City, helping the Thunder reach the 2012 NBA Finals against Miami.
