Gotta stay getting those second round and potentially ECF playoff revenues.

No problem at all with this deal.

That's not a terrible deal for a player of Ibaka's caliber in this market. I'm not sure what his max is, but I've got to think it was more than this. To think that this isn't slightly more per year than what the Rockets gave Ryno last year makes me want to throw up in my mouth a little bit. At the same time, this is a pretty solid payday for Ibaka. He earned this one, and in three years, there's a good chance he'll still have enough left in the tank to earn another one.

The Raptors had to get Ibaka and Lowry locked up to stay competitive in the East. But the question remains: How does Toronto get better this offseason? They've already lost Tucker, so that's one guy they have to replace. Have they signed anybody else that I haven't seen at this point? Are they seeking trades? I just don't know how the Raptors can feasibly take the next step with this roster.

Can't give a guy who may or may not be in his late 30s longer than a 3 year.

All very good questions. Much of them have been talking points in the Raptors forum. Losing Tucker stings.
