The risk he took to chase a ring he never got.

@wojespn:
Breaking: Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors have agreed on a one-year, $31M contract extension that takes the five-time All-Star guard out of July’s free agency market, agent Mark Bartelstein of @PrioritySports tells ESPN. https://t.co/nkhme9AHes

I like Kyle Lowry but these NBA salaries are insane.

They definitely are. I'm not a Lowry fan, and the salary doesn't come cheap, but in this NBA climate where everyone seems to get a max deal, this seems alright. Can't complain at the term either. I trust Masai knows what he's doing.

Edit: And just as I say this, I receive an alert from The Score app from Michael Grange stating that Lowry was going to request a trade to force the Raps hand if he didn't receive an extension. Rest assured now he'll be dealt at the deadline. Odd way of handling things in basketball.

I love Spicy P. Happy to see him remain a Raptor for the next few years.

Everyone in basketball gets a max deal. I'm happy to see Siakam get a contract but honestly he's not worth a max contract yet. He does have the maturity to work hard, so I think there's less of a chance of this guy giving up now that he's got a contract. I just want to see more progress this year for him to be consistent and a real athletic force. He's a humble guy and I hope he continues to work at his craft.
