Norman Powell, Raptors Agree To Extension

Norman Powell has agreed to a four year extension with the Toronto Raptors, paying the third year guard an estimated $42 million, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.Not wanting to deal with free agency, the Raptors have now put themselves in the iron sights of the luxury tax for the 2018-19 campaign, in a move that is well worth it.

Powell, a second round pick out of UCLA, has been an integral part of the Raptors culture with his scrappy play off the bench. It was during the post-season where he saw most of his success during the 2016-17 season, notching over seven minutes from his regular season average, while putting up 11.7 points and over a steal in 25.2 minutes.
