The athletic big man's deal, which can't be finalized until the NBA's moratorium on free agent signings is lifted on Thursday, is reportedly worth US$65 million. That said, Ibaka played relatively well as he averaged 14 points and 6.5 boards on 46% shooting from the field.
Ibaka averaged 14.2 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 23 regular season games with the Raptors, leading all National Basketball Association big men in three-point accuracy (.398) in that span as the team went 17-7 with Ibaka in the lineup, helping to overcome the injury absence of Kyle Lowry for much of that time.
Now, the Raptors are turning all of their attention to re-signing point guard Kyle Lowry, which they are expected to do. He has played the last five seasons for the Raptors. Ibaka, is one of the best power forwards in the Eastern Conference. Along with Tucker, Ibaka gave the Raptors an instant defensive upgrade. Serge also hit an impressive 38.3 percent of his "catch-and-shoot" three-pointers last season. It's telling me that the Raptors can be a championship-level team, sooner than later. P.J. Tucker made a decision to sign with Houston, so Toronto has Kyle Lowry, Patrick Patterson and OG Anunoby left to sign in free agency.
For a power forward, Ibaka is still an excellent rim protector.
Brought in to give the Raptors' All-Star backcourt some much-needed help inside, Ibaka helped Toronto eliminate the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round by averaging 12.8 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game in the series. Lowry underwent wrist surgery and didn't return until the final four games of the regular season.
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.
