After flirting with potential moves to other NBA cities, free agent point guard Kyle Lowry has re-signed with the Toronto Raptors on a four-year, $48 million contract. Lowry was a potential fit for the Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. In the end, he chose to stay with a Raptors team that surprised a lot of people last year.

Lowry averaged 17.9 points and 7.4 assists per game for the Raptors last season. He was considered one of the top free agent point guards on the market. This has to be considered a coup for Toronto, who was preparing for the possibility that Lowry would bolt for the bright lights of Los Angeles or Miami.
