Raptors agree to three-year, $54M contract with Gary Trent Jr.

Michael Grange takes a look back at Kyle Lowry's remarkable tenure in Toronto as the greatest Raptors player of all time.

The Toronto Raptors have agreed to a three-year, $54-million contract with restricted free agent Gary Trent Jr..

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was first to report agreement, which was later confirmed by Sportsnet's Michael Grange. The contract includes a player option in the third year.

Trent Jr. was the key piece the Raptors received in the Norman Powell trade with the Portland Trail Blazers at the trade deadline this past season.

The 22-year-old shooting guard, whose father Gary Trent Sr. also briefly played for the Raptors, set career-highs with 15.3 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists last season.

The reported agreement comes only moments after Raptors icon Kyle Lowry reportedly agreed to join the Miami Heat as part of a sign-and-trade.
