TORONTO (AP) — Kyle Lowry is staying with the Toronto Raptors after leading them to the Atlantic Division title.

The point guard has agreed to re-sign with the Raptors, his agent confirms Wednesday night. Yahoo Sports reported that the deal was for four years and $48 million.

Lowry averaged career highs of 17.9 points and 7.4 assists for the Raptors, who were one of the NBA’s biggest surprises in going 48-34. He was reportedly targeted by contending teams such as Miami and Houston during free agency.

Contracts can’t be signed until July 10.
