Cat Zingano Set to Return at UFC 178 to Try and Recapture Her Shot at Ronda Rousey – Yahoo Sports

Financial terms of Lowry’s deal were not disclosed, the team reached an agreement on a four-year deal worth a reported $48 million on July 3, quickly taking the eight-year veteran off the free agent market. “We made it known that our top priority heading into the offseason was to re-sign Kyle,” Raptors president and general manager Masai Ujiri said in a statement. “He was a key to our success last season and we are delighted that he wants to be here in Toronto to help us continue to build a championship program.” Lowry averaged 17.9 points, 7.4 assists instagram comments and 4.7 rebounds last season for the Raptors, who made the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2008. Lowry, 28, showed a picture of himself wearing a Raptors jersey on Instagram shortly after agreeing to the new contract. “This ain’t Amir jersey y’all!! Lol….. it’s for the 2014-15 season cause Toronto will be my home city,” he wrote. Lowry finished seventh in the NBA in assists per game while starting all 79 games he appeared in last season, and became the fourth Raptors player to post two triple-doubles in the same season.
