The Toronto Raptors are shopping Kyle Lowry and Kyle Lowry is well aware.
While Memphis has most seriously continued dialogue with Utah and Detroit on Mike Conley trade packages, the Raptors called Memphis offering Kyle Lowry and Jonas Valanciunas for Conley and Marc Gasol, per league sources. Lowry is aware of Toronto’s general trade discussions.

Ever since the team traded his best friend, you could easily tell Lowry was fed up with Masai and company. Or how about the night when the team came out and said Lowry wasn’t playing due to load-management and Lowry told the medical staff to shove it, and he was going. Sure, he’s said all the right things anytime the camera is on him like how he will go to work for his teammates and those are his guys, but he also gets paid over $30 million to say that type of bullshit.
It’s no secret the Raps have capable PG’s in FVV and Delon Wright, so getting Lowry’s money off the books would set themselves up nicely for the summer, or for whoever they decide to bring in if they have some term on their contract.
Who knows if it ends up being Memphis, the Spurs, NOLA, Lakers, or maybe even Denver, what we do know is the Raptors are shopping Kyle Lowry, and Kyle Lowry is well aware.
