After acquiring Greivis Vasquez in the trade that sent Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings, the Toronto Raptors are looking to move on from point guard Kyle Lowry, this according to ESPN:

New Raptors front-office boss Masai Ujiri has managed to trade away Andrea Bargnani and now Gay over the past six months to create financial flexibility going forward and — with Toronto apparently determined to avoid any accidental success in the Atlanta Division — is said to be happy to surrender veteran point guard Kyle Lowry next.

Lowry’s been a disappointment in Toronto ever since he was acquired from the Houston Rockets in the 2012-13 season. In addition to below average play, Lowry has struggled with injury and given his impending free agency, there’s little reason not to make a move. Even securing a draft pick in exchange for Lowry makes sense considering he won’t be brought back at season end.

In the hunt for Andrew Wiggins, the Raptors are more than open to tanking and Lowry shouldn’t expect to be residing in Toronto much longer.

    a disappointment? have you watched one game this season? lowry has been playing really good, hes averging 20 points and 6+ assists per game in the last 3.

    You’ve taken whatever credibility you think you have to comment on basketball, or at least the Toronto Raptors, and flushed it down the crapper by suggesting Lowry has been a disappointment ever since he was acquired. Absolutely ridiculous.
