Kyle Lowry On Future With Toronto Raptors: ‘I Love This Place’
[new_royalslider id=”139″]

With the Los Angeles Lakers preparing for the 2014 NBA Draft and free agency, one of the team’s targets is current Toronto Raptors point guard, Kyle Lowry. While he has bounced around in his eight seasons, Lowry emerged as one of the best point guards in the league as he averaged 17.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 7.4 assists.

After a thrilling seven game series with the Brooklyn Nets that ended in defeat on Sunday, Lowry was asked about his future with the Raptors as free agency approaches according to the Toronto Stars’ Doug Smith:

After an impressive 48-34 season that earned the Raptors the third seed in the Eastern Conference, it is easy to see why Lowry would want to stay in Toronto. With a team that is on the rise and only getting better, the Raptors have quietly become an attractive destination for free agents.

For the Lakers, Lowry is one of the best free agents available this summer. While Steve Nash will try to finish the remainder of his contract, he acknowledged during his exit meeting that the Lakers simply can’t rely on him any longer.

Although the Lakers have ample cap room this summer, GM Mitch Kupchak mentioned that it doesn’t mean the team will use it all this off-season. However, if Lowry and the Raptors can’t come to an agreement, the Lakers should be in pursuit of one of the up-and-coming point guard the league has to offer.
