"Other teams had some great things and I think they had pieces that were comparable pieces, but I think the situation that I'm in, the age I'm (at), me being able to lead a team, to lead a team and grow as a person, that was a very big factor in it."

"Hundred per cent in our game plan because he's signed here for four years," said Ujiri. "There's going to be lots of games and we have to think about that. We have to think of his body and the load of work. Greivis will take a good load off of (Kyle) and so will Lou."
"They were real factors. I did my homework. I did my research," the point guard said. "I had a couple meetings with my family and we circled the pros and cons and we took teams away one by one.
Lowry has confidence in his general manager.
"With Kyle, there's always been a great spirit and great communication so I had a sense, but with free agency you never know because it can spin in one day. We're glad he made the decision. It says so much about him and maybe even our organization."
Ujiri admitted the re signing of Vasquez, and the acquisition of Williams, were moves to protect the long term health of Lowry.
"It was a good feeling I had coming out of the meeting (with Kyle)," said Ujiri of negotiations. "I've had this meeting before where its' gone the other way and you come out and you're like going 'what just happened there?' or 'where is this going?'.
On Wednesday night reports surfaced the team has re signed Greivis Vasquez to a two year, $13 million contract. Vasquez's signing is in addition to reports the team has inked big man Patrick Patterson to a three year US$18 million contract. Both deals are expected to be announced Monday.

Re signing Lowry, one of the top unrestricted point guards available, was a high priority for Raptors general manager Masai Ujiri.

Lowry's signing is just part of what has been a busy off season for Ujiri. Thursday afternoon the club announced it had dealt forward Steve Novak and a future second round draft choice to the Utah Jazz for point guard Diante Garrett.
TORONTO Kyle Lowry didn't hide the fact he met with contenders like the Miami Heat and Houston Rockets during the interview portion of NBA free agency, but in the end the opportunity to call the Toronto Raptors "his team" was too good to pass up.
