Heat Interested in Veteran Big Man Serge Ibaka

Report: Knicks to pursue Griffin, not Ujiri

Based on Toronto's current situation, I would guess that Lowry signs a three-year deal with the Raptors worth somewhere around $87 million.

In a rather unsurprising move, the Toronto Raptors pulled out all the stops to re-sign Serge Ibaka, as he is a player they pushed hard to get at the trade deadline. The Raptors are 2-8 against the Cavs in the playoffs the last two seasons. Serge Ibaka was a reliable dump off option for the Raptors, and he will be a good fit for the long-term offering a third core offensive contributor alongside DeMar DeRozan, and potentially Kyle Lowry.

In this ratings hit, Bob Odenkirk reprises his role of a crooked lawyer from that two-time Emmy victor for Best Drama Series. AMC has announced that Better Call Saul is being renewed for season 4, which will consist of 10 episodes.

ASM Sports, the agency that represents Serge Ibaka also confirmed the report that the superstar will remain with the Toronto Raptors. The vet averaged 9.1 points and 4.2 rebounds on the season. He has made the All-Star team in each of the last three seasons, while the Raptors enjoyed their longest period of sustained success over the past four campaigns, winning three division titles and reaching the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015-16. The native of Pickering, Ontario is slated to make US$7.6 million this upcoming season. The Raptors may have to say goodbye to Patrick Patterson, unless Toronto's ownership is willing to pay the extra taxes to re-sign him. He will be entering his ninth season in the National Basketball Association. As compared to centers, however, his block rate is only a little better than average. Is one of the highest payrolls in the league really worth it for a non-contender?

Ibaka was dealt from the Orlando Magic to the Toronto Raptors midseason past year, and the Raptors are expected to make a strong push to keep the 6-foot-10 power forward. Toronto has a lot of questions heading into the 2017-18 season, and they could regret not breaking up the team in this offseason.
