Earlier in the season, the Raptors couldn’t wait to rid themselves of Lowry, but his improved play paired with the improved play of the Raptors forced the team to hold off on any potential moves.
Now with the deadline just a few weeks away, the Raptors will play the next few weeks and let their results decide if they plan to trade Kyle Lowry or not – this according to ESPN New York.
The Raptors reportedly are going to see how things play out over the next two weeks before they decide what to do with Lowry. They’d been asking for a first-round pick earlier in the season, a price the Knicks weren’t willing to meet.
Lowry, who suffered what is believed to be a mild injury on Monday night, is a free agent at season end and is unlikely to re-sign with Toronto, so it’s really a matter of attempting to get an asset for Lowry or making a push towards the playoffs.
