Serge Ibaka reaches three-year, $65 million to stay with Toronto, per report

Serge Ibaka has reportedly reached a deal to stay in Toronto, according to reports from The Vertical.

The deal is reportedly worth $65 million over three years. Ibaka, traded to the Raptors from Orlando before the All-Star break, finished his fourth and final year of his contract in 2016-17, a year in which he made $12.3 million in base salary.

Ibaka averaged 14.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 30.7 minutes per game in 2016-17. He played his final 23 games of the season for the Raptors, averaging 14.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 31.0 minutes played.

The move comes after losing P.J. Tucker to free agency on Sunday. Tucker reportedly signed a four-year, $32 million deal with the Rockets.

The Sixers weren’t content with trading up to land the No. 1 pick in the draft, Markelle Fultz. On draft night, they obtained the Magic’s No. 25 pick (Anzejs Pasecniks) for their 2020 first-round pick (via Oklahoma City) and 2020 second-round pick.

Denver selected Louisville shooting guard Donovan Mitchell with the No. 13 pick, but he didn’t have a chance to get too comfy in that Nuggets hat. Denver traded Mitchell to the Jazz in exchange for Trey Lyles and the No. 24 pick (Tyler Lydon).

With three first-round picks, the Blazers packaged two of them in a deal to move up in the draft. Portland sent the 15th and 20th picks (Justin Jackson and Harry Giles, respectively) to Sacramento for the rights to the No. 10 overall pick (Zach Collins). lightning_138
