The NBA’s Most Improved Player is staying in Toronto. According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Pascal Siakam has agreed to a four-year, maximum contract extension worth $130 million with the Raptors.
The contract extension kicks in for the 2020-21 season, after Siakam plays out the last year of his rookie contract.
It was expected that the Raptors would agree to a deal with the 25 year old, who became a core player in last season’s title run and one of basketball’s fastest-rising young stars. With Kawhi Leonard gone, Siakam should have a chance to continue his development as a potential No. 1 option in the offense.
Raptors fans are definitely excited to have Spicy P in Toronto for the long haul.
