Kyle Lowry hasn't thought much about upcoming free agency


With the world focused on what LeBron James and Carmelo Anthony will do this summer, Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry has kind of fallen under the radar in regards to free agency. But with free agency a few weeks away, Lowry says it hasn’t been on his mind as of yet.

After averaging a career-high 17.9 points on 42 percent shooting along with 7.4 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game, Lowry enters free agency as the best point guard on the market–with Eric Bledsoe right behind him. He’s a bonafide scorer on offense and a pest of defense. With the league shifting to the athletic point guard, Lowry’s the perfect fit for teams and, if he chooses to, he could be in for a major pay day.

But like many NBA players who are headed toward the latter end of their careers, money may not be everything to Lowry. According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, the eight year point guard is interested in the idea of playing for the Miami Heat.

“The guy who has mutual interest with the Heat and who fits a position of need is Kyle Lowry.”

Of course, the Miami Heat would have to beat out a Toronto Raptors team that has the ability to offer Lowry an extra year on his contract, and with Lowry displaying max contract talent, that could mean and extra $10 to $15 million.

And did we mention Lowry enjoys the city of Toronto?

Aside from the marquee superstars, where Lowry lands will be an interesting storyline to follow this summer.
