Report: Siakam extension 'almost a certainty'

  Report: Siakam extension 'almost a certainty' The Toronto Raptors appear to be on the verge of locking up a key part of their future. Pascal Siakam and the club have until Monday to agree on a rookie-scale extension and "it's almost a certainty" that they'll come to terms before that, according to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes. However, it'll take a maximum contract offer to secure Siakam's signature, league sources told Haynes. The 27th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft is eligible to receive a five-year, $170-million deal from Toronto, whereas other teams can extend a maximum offer of four years and $130 million.

Wednesday's matchup marked Casey's first game in Toronto since the Raptors won the NBA Championship last June. Casey won all three games Detroit played against his old team last year in his first season as coach of the Pistons.

Casey, Toronto's all-time leader in coaching victories (320) and winning percentage (.573), was fired by the Raptors in May 2018. He was honoured as the NBA's coach of the year in his final season in Toronto.

Casey was replaced by Nick Nurse, who previously served as his assistant with the Raptors.

"Obviously we had a great run together. We won a heck of a lot of ball games, and fought a lot of battles together," Nurse said before the game. "He did an outstanding job with Detroit last year and they're going to be knocking on the door again this year.

"They're very well coached, they're hard to play against. ... So, tremendous amount of respect for him as a person and as a coach. He keeps putting out teams that win."

Casey received a warm ovation from the fans at Scotiabank Arena when he was announced as the Pistons coach before the game, and the Raptors played a video tribute for him during a timeout in the first quarter.

The Raptors led 37-28 after 12 minutes and 64-58 at the half. Anunoby ignited the crowd early with a pair of dunks, including one on a Detroit turnover that put Toronto up 28-20 with two minutes left in the first quarter.

Siakam scores 44 points, Raptors beat Pelicans 122-104 .
NEW ORLEANS — The Toronto Raptors tried to balance celebrating an impressive performance by Pascal Siakam and concern over injuries to two of their top players. Siakam matched a career high with 44 points in the Raptors' 122-104 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night. As Siakam drained shots, Toronto's medical staff was evaluating injuries to starting point guard Kyle Lowry and sixth-man Serge Ibaka. Lowry suffered a fractured left thumb and Ibaka has a severely sprained ankle. That means the defending NBA Champions will likely be depleted — at least in the immediate future.
