Cavs: Larry Nance Jr. signs four-year contract extension worth $44.8 miliion

Nance averaged 8.9 points and 7.0 rebounds in 24 games last season.

Lowry and Leonard combined for 18 points in the third quarter, and Lowry's three with 4:25 to play in the quarter gave the Raptors a 20-point lead, their biggest of the game.

"I haven't come up with the word for it yet", said Nance, wearing a T-shirt with "HOME" on the front.

"I'm one of you guys", he said.

The sides had until 6 p.m. on Monday to work out terms for the deal or Nance would have become an unrestricted free agent in 2019.

"You never want to lose a player of his calibre, but that being said we're all very excited to show that we're more than what we've got to show the past couple of years", Nance Jr told BBC Sport.

Nance agreed to a four-year deal with the Cavaliers, the National Basketball Association franchise announced on Monday. "Surreal doesn't even cut it".

Before the game, Sky Sports pundit Redknapp quizzed the Cavs power forward on where his love for football (soccer) came from and who was his favourite Premier League player.

Nance is expected to platoon with Tristan Thompson at starting center as he enters his fourth professional season. "There's no place I would rather be".

The Toronto Raptors point guard performed the handshake routine he conducted with his former teammate ahead of his team's regular-season opener against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday. He played in 168 games with Los Angeles before he was sent to the Cavaliers as part of the Isaiah Thomas trade in early February.

The play might be spotty at times - in fact, it's nearly assured that there will be gruesome stretches given the time of year - but there are intriguing matchups all over the floor and any intelligence that can be gathered Friday might come in handy in May. "His athleticism is off the charts and his positive attitude, work ethic and most importantly, his desire to be in Cleveland embodies all that we want out of our players both on and off the court".

Toronto was the East's top seed and finished four games ahead of the Celtics previous year, and many have warned that the Bostonians might not be quite the lock to make it to The Finals if Leonard is healthier and more engaged than he was last season in San Antonio. Obviously we are not where we need to be but I don't think anyone expects that right off the bat.
