Raptors cornerstone Pascal Siakam gets $130M extension

Forward Pascal Siakam has agreed to a four-year, $130 million maximum rookie contract extension.

Siakam is one of the Raptors' great scouting and player development success stories. A 27th overall pick who started playing basketball at 16 years old in Cameroon, Siakam was voted the NBA's Most Improved Player a year ago and played an integral part in Toronto's first NBA championship.

He averaged 19.8 points, 7.5 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 0.7 blocks per game in the NBA Finals -- including 23.8 points on 59% shooting in the Raptors' four victories over the Golden State Warriors.
