Kyle Lowry, Raptors agree to deal that keeps Toronto's core intact

Masai Ujiri is no longer the object of the Knicks' affection after headline-making overtures in recent days

Lowry made his decision public via a piece on The Players' Tribune.

The athletic big man's deal, which can't be finalized until the NBA's moratorium on free agent signings is lifted on Thursday, is reportedly worth US$65 million.

Ibaka, who was acquired from the Orlando Magic in a trade for Terrence Ross and a first-round pick, averaged 14.2 points and 6.8 rebounds in 23 games after the All-Star break deal.

Pacquiao looks beyond Horn, has Mayweather rematch in mind
Promoter Bob Arum said at the fighters' press conference that over 10 million fans in the United States would catch the fight. During the week of June 26, classic Pacquiao fights will be available on demand and streaming via ESPN's mobile app.

Serge Ibaka will be returning to Jurassic Park. "I was not born in the jungle", Ibaka said. It was the final year of his four-year deal.

As for his salary, the $21 to $23 million he will receive ($20M in year one, $21M in year two and $23M in year three, according to Spotrac.com) is right around what he's worth based on the current National Basketball Association landscape. Cory Joseph could be dealt and this likely ends Patrick Patterson's time in Toronto.

"They all led me back to Toronto". Still an athletic specimen, he shot 39 percent on four 3-point attempts per game last season, and he's only missed more than four games in a season once since his rookie year, making him an attractive power forward or center option in the pace-and-space era.

A separate measure would strip federal dollars from "sanctuary" cities that shield residents from federal immigration authorities. It is named after Kathryn Steinle , who was shot and killed in San Francisco in 2015 by a man who was in the country illegally.

The Knicks will need a lot more than just a president to purge the stigma of being a dysfunctional and ingrate organization as they proved to be throughout last season, in the midst of many issues between their players and their front office.

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. He's an unrestricted free agent now, but teams are questioning his value after he wasn't able to boost the Raptors into Eastern Conference contention.
