Kyle Lowry has announced in The Players Tribune that he has chosen to remain with the Raptors.

Losing Lowry represented the worst-case scenario for the Raptors, as the point guard has established himself alongside shooting guard DeMar DeRozan as one of the most lethal backcourt combos in the league.

"I'm coming back to Toronto because my heart is telling me that it's home", said Lowry, noting that he still hasn't had poutine - a wildly popular dish in Canada.

He will re-sign with them for three years and $100 million according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Ibaka's contract is worth a reported $65 million over three years.

What do you think about the Toronto Raptors re-signing Serge Ibaka?

As for his salary, the $21 to $23 million he will receive ($20M in year one, $21M in year two and $23M in year three, according to Spotrac.com) is right around what he's worth based on the current National Basketball Association landscape.

"I'm sad that may people will have read a rumor and will have made a false assumption that can last forever, while they maybe will not read what I'm writing now". Ibaka will be a mid-range fantasy prospect this season. 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.

"I have an opportunity to play for a great team, a great organization and great city so I'm very excited", Ibaka had said before his first appearance as a Raptor. Last season, he averaged 14.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game. Ibaka spent his first seven NBA seasons in Oklahoma City, helping the Thunder reach the 2012 NBA Finals against Miami.
