Raptors guard Kyle Lowry posts great Instagram after teammate signs a whopping $139 million deal to stay with the team

Mozgov, DeRozan, Whiteside lead early NBA free agency agreements

NBA free agency kicked off at 12:01 a.m. ET on Friday, and the big deals started rolling in immediately.

Among those was the five-year, $139 million max contract for Toronto Raptors wing DeMar DeRozan.

DeRozan had been linked to several other teams but ultimately chose to stay with the Raptors, who made the Eastern Conference Finals after a franchise-best 56-26 season.

After reports of DeRozan's deal came out, his fellow All-Star backcourt teammate Kyle Lowry posted an Instagram of him and DeRozan together. It was a simple congratulation, but the hashtags made it. Lowry wrote in hashtags, "Dinner is never on me again" and "I already charged all my bills to your card."

It shouldn't be a problem for DeRozan, who now has an average yearly salary of $27 million.
