Toronto Raptors, Budding Star Siakam Working Towards Extension

Kawhi Leonard may be gone, but the Toronto Raptors believe that they will be okay.

A big reason as to why is Pascal Siakam, the reigning Most Improved Player of the Year was instrumental in the Raptors championship run last season and remains in the long term plans of the franchise. With the hope that the star forward takes another big step forward this upcoming season, the Raptors are hoping to work out an extension with Siakam prior to the October 21 deadline.

The fourth year forward out of New Mexico state is in line for a hefty pay raise as both sides are reportedly eying a five year max extension worth $170-million according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN.

If both sides are unable to strike a deal before the deadline, Siakam will become a restricted free agent at the end of the upcoming NBA season.

Siakam will be relied onto become the guy in Toronto this year and is coming off a career season in which he averaged 16.9 points and 6.9 rebounds per game while shooting 54.9-percent from the field. Siakam took his game to another level in 24 playoff games when he averaged 19 points and 7.1 rebounds for the eventual NBA champions.

The assumption around the organization is that both sides will get a deal done before the season.
