Lowry was the Raptors’ top priority now that Kawhi Leonard left in free agency. With Lowry locked up through next season, Toronto can now focus on an extension for rising young star Pascal Siakam who will be a restricted free agent after this season.
In his 13-year career, Lowry has made the All-Star team five times. He has career averages of 14.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game.
