There is no word as to how those Raptors players will be impacted. Miller helped Lowry and Ibaka ink three-year extensions with Toronto this past summer, but VanVleet’s contract expires after this season. According to Wojnarowski, many of Miller’s former clients “are expected to remain with other agents in the company.”
