Reports: Kyle Lowry hot commodity, Raptors asking price high

Nine losses in 10 games might have pushed the Toronto Raptors into rebuilding mode, which could make moving point guard Kyle Lowry at the trade deadline a reality.

According to reports Thursday, the Miami Heat, Philadelphia 76ers and Los Angeles Lakers are at the front of the line in talks to acquire Lowry.

Lowry celebrates his 35th birthday on Thursday not knowing whether he’ll be living in another city by Friday.

Lowry is averaging 17.4 points, 7.5 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game this season.

ESPN reported the Raptors are asking the 76ers for Tyrese Maxey, Matisse Thybulle and two first-round picks.

Talen Horton-Tucker and multiple first-round picks are thought to be the request of the Lakers.

And The Athletic reported a deal with the Heat would come down to Miami’s willingness to part with 21-year-old Tyler Herro.

Toronto also reportedly is listening to offers for forward Norman Powell.

Lowry is playing on a one-year, $30.5 million contract extension he signed with Toronto in October 2019. He becomes a free agent after this season.
