Lowry Congratulates Anunoby, VanVleet on Their Brand New Contracts
After nearly a decade in Toronto, Kyle Lowry has grown into the old head of the group.
He’s the real OG.
He’s the heart and soul of the franchise – a true leader.
This offseason, Lowry has enjoyed seeing his young guys receive what many of us have known for a long time that they definitely deserve. His fellow backcourt mate who in many ways resembles Lowry in both play and personality, Fred VanVleet, received a four-year, $84-million deal – the most ever given to an undrafted free agent.

On Monday, his other young buck, OG Anunoby received his and Lowry was at the very front of the line ready to congratulate the 23-year old forward on the shiny new pay check. Similar to Freddy, Lowry had an absolutely adorable social media post ready to go for Anunoby.
The 34-year old Lowry has seen plenty of his rookies get paid. Under his watch and leadership, he has seen the likes of Pascal Siakam flourish into an All-Star, Terrence Ross develop in a reliable 3-and-D wing, and of course DeMar DeRozan take his game to new heights.
Lowry’s jersey will soon be in the rafters at the Scotiabank Arena, but a statue better follow!
