Winderman also notes that if the Raptors lose point guard Kyle Lowry in free agency, they might be more willing to let Ibaka go to jump-start a rebuilding process.

The Raptors defeated Milwaukee in the first round of the post-season before being swept by Cleveland in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Serge Ibaka is sticking around. Tucker has signed a four-year contract worth US$32 million with the Houston Rockets. "What's sure is that, no matter what, nobody can take away from me the pride for my origins and the love that I have for basketball". He averaged 14.2 points and 6.8 rebounds in 23 games with the Raptors. At the end of the season, he said his daughter liked Toronto though and he is close with his former Oklahoma City assistant coach Rex Kalamian, who remains on Dwane Casey's staff. At various points over the past year, Lowry had been considered, at least by some fans and media members, a candidate for a max contract.

"I'm sad that may people will have read a rumor and will have made a false assumption that can last forever, while they maybe will not read what I'm writing now".

ESPN first reported that Ibaka will return to the Raptors and the Toronto Star later confirmed the news.

Lowry is coming off a four-year, $48 million deal he signed in the summer of 2014, but he officially declined his player option for the 2017-18 season in May, making him an unrestricted free agent.

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.
