Veteran point guard Kyle Lowry is staying put after agreeing to a new deal with the Toronto Raptors. The star confirmed as much through his own Twitter account on Wednesday.
"This ain't Amir jersey y'all!! Lol..... it's for the 2014-15 season cause Toronto will be my home city,'' said Lowry, sporting a vintage Raptors jersey.
According to several reports, Lowry's deal is US$48 million through four years with an opt-out after the third year. League rules restrict signings or trades until July 10, but players and their agents are allowed to confirm agreements.
Re-signing Lowry, the top point guard available in NBA free agency, was a No. 1 priority for the Raptors after a stellar season.
