Kyle Lowry, who helped Toronto reach the postseason for the first time in a half dozen years, and the Raptors have agreed to a four-year contract extension.
The 28-year-old free-agent guard told Yahoo Sports "Toronto is just the right place for me'' and retweeted the report about the deal. The contract is reportedly worth US$48 million.
