    Lowry Signs 1 yr, $31m extension

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/basketball/...ion-extension/

    I wonder if he plans to retire after that. I guess he won't be traded this year.

    Lowry Extended 1 year for 31 Million

    Thoughts?

    Me personally, Im cool with it since the free agent class is going to be weak. This looks like they'll lock up Pascal before the deadline instead of waiting for the Summer. Maybe Masai is waiting to take a shot at Giannis in '21. I trust his strategy and have complete faith.

    Im OK with mini rewarding Lowry for his services and him helping elevate the franchise (champs) even if he is on the decline. Especially if its only 1 year, if they signed him to another Max, I don't know about that lol.

    This also shows class by organization in rewarding its core player(s).

    i love this organization. even if i have never felt so empty after a championship win and don't have the least interest in the upcoming season (yet), i feel like we are the best organization all things considered atm.

    but hopefully we can use his expiring, if not at least we unloaded Novak's deal...

    who ever trades for him will get an extra year of control thus giving him more value in the trade. Brilliant

    I don't know about the extra control. Other teams will probably view his salary as a burden or possible hindrance. Masai gave him the coin as a token and gesture of his contributions to the raptors. Other teams won't view it the same way.

    Maybe he takes i discount after his 1 year extension is up. He is on the decline but his intangibles and skills could age well and he is a respected leader/vet for the lockerroom.

    It's kind of a double edged sword if you ask me. Sure he won't be a rental anymore but he'll be 35 years old making 31 million. I don't think he gets traded though. I expect one of Gasol/Ibaka to be gone 100% but not Lowry.

    I figured you’d be happy because it’s pretty much the same team from two seasons ago minus DeRozan.

    This was a genius move. Reward your guy, add value if he wants a trade, keep that max slot open for giannis.

    Oh wow! Nice move by all parties involved!

    I hope Lowry retires a Raptor!

    Well deserved thank you to the GROAT.

    Allows Masai to have flexibility for that biggest Free Agency summer of 2021.

    Maybe Kyle if he still decides to play further would accept a vet minimum with a lesser role then.

    Retire a Raptor.

    Listen to this song by DJ Kool and replace throat with scrote and enjoy the laughs.

    Do you still listen to this rubbish? Its too gutter, too infantile and too unrefined for my taste...lol.

    Its a new season, I recommend you part ways with old habits. .

    A sign a of trusting relationship with a management and the most important player in franchise history. Lowry wants to win and knows his value. This coming off-season sucks for free agents, while the following one will be lucrative. Happy to see Lowry is willing to give another year towards this group and see of the Raps can build another contender.
