Once considered an integral part of the Oklahoma City's championship-contending core, the Thunder dumped his expiring contract to to the Orlando Magic at the 2016 National Basketball Association draft for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis - the same two pieces they just used to expire Paul George on an expiring deals.

Point guard Kyle Lowry, the fifth-ranked free agent by CBS Sports, has chose to stay with the Toronto Raptors, his decision coming only hours after Serge Ibaka agreed to a new deal with Toronto on Sunday morning. DeRozan, Ibaka, and center Jonas Valanciunas are all signed under the Bird Rights. They've won 48, 49, 56, and 51 regular season games over the last four seasons, and there is no one left on the planet who any longer believes their potential is greater than what they've achieved.

If you want to try to read between the leaves a bit here with this deal, it likely means Kyle Lowry is close to re-signing, too. The Raptors are coming off back-to-back seasons of at least 50 wins and with no other Eastern Conference rival making an early splash in free agency, there's every reason to think Toronto will remain in the upper echelon next season.
