The offseason has just begun and it has already been full of blockbuster trades with two Eastern NBA All-stars going to the west. NBA fans have said that this offseason seems to be more exciting than the NBA season. Kidding aside let's look at some new updates on the free agency scene in the NBA:

Paul Millsap signs $90 million contract

Paul Millsap has been pursued by a handful of NBA teams this offseason with the Suns got the first meeting but the Suns said Millsap was asking too for too much. Minnesota also backed out of pursuing Millsap due to cap issues. A day later, Millsap talked with Denver Nuggets front office and the rest was history.

Shams Charania of The Vertical reported that Paul Millsap has signed a three-year contract with the Denver Nuggets worth $90 million (the third year being a team option). The four-time NBA All-Star had an incredible season last year after Al Horford left for Boston Celtics. He averaged a career-high of around 18 points along with 0.9 blocks, 1.3 steals, 3.7 assists, and 7.7 rebounds while shooting 44.2% from the field. The Denver Nuggets will have their hands full this season with the West getting stronger, but with Millsap, Jokic, Harris and (if they can re-sign him) Danilo Gallanari they can become a real threat this upcoming season to make a playoff run.

Kyle Lowry stays home in Toronto

"But for me, at the end of the day, this was an easy decision.

And all of those roads … they all led me back to the same place: home. They all led me back to Toronto." This was the last line of the essay Lowry wrote to announce his stay in Toronto. The Vertical reporter Shams Charania confirmed that Kyle Lowry has reportedly signed a 3 year, $100 million contract to stay with the Toronto Raptors this offseason.

Lowry was a big steal in the draft, being drafted with the 24th pick by the Memphis Grizzlies and once he arrived in Toronto he blossomed to a three-time NBA All-Star and is the all-time leader of the Toronto Raptors in triple-doubles. Last year Lowry averaged a career high in points with 22.4 along with 1.5 steals, seven assists, and 4.8 rebounds while shooting 46.4% from the field and 41.2% from beyond the arc.

Along with the Kyle Lowry news, Serge Ibaka has also decided to stay in Toronto inking a 3 year $65 million deal per Adrian Wojnarowski of the of ESPN. The offseason rumors are all shut down and Toronto is still going to be a big threat in the East next season with Derozan, Lowry, and Ibaka staying, if they can add just a few more pieces they will surely be a huge contending team in the NBA this season.
