Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Kyle Lowry has agreed to a four-year, $48 million contract to stay with the Toronto Raptors.
This is a huge deal for the Raptors and also could mean that Jeremy Lin could stay with the Rockets if they don't land Carmelo Anthony. Lowry had a nice bounce-back season last year and if he can stay healthy, qualifies as an elite NBA point guard. Lowry will have the option to opt out of the fourth and final year of the deal.

Kyle Lowry is mulling contract offers from the Rockets and Raptors, according to Yahoo! Sports, and he hasn't yet committed to meeting with other teams.

The Heat are telling free agents that they have $12 million available, which could make them a real option for Lowry, but Miami's star players haven't been recruiting K-Low and the Heat are also interested in Luol Deng. The Rockets' offer for Lowry may rely on a sign-and-trade which the Raptors wouldn't assent to since they want to keep him, so at the moment Toronto seems to be in the pole position.

The Rockets are reportedly interested in a sign-and-trade deal for Kyle Lowry, but the Raptors aren't complying since they hope to re-sign him.

Lowry is an unrestricted FA who is also one of Miami's top targets in free agency, but the Raptors can offer him the most money and they're confident that he'll stay in Toronto. Lou Williams is capable of backing up both the PG and SG positions, and if Lowry does re-sign the Raptors may be less inclined to match offers for restricted FA Greivis Vasquez.

The Raptors are set to meet with free agent point guard Kyle Lowry on Tuesday in Philadelphia, Yahoo! Sports is reporting.

The Rockets, and likely several other teams, will also be meeting with Lowry, who is one of the hottest guards on the market this free agent season. The Raptors may have the inside track, not only since he played there last season, but because the Raps can offer the most money. A return to Toronto would not be the least bit surprising.

Houston general manager Daryl Morey flew to Philadelphia to meet with free agent point guard Kyle Lowry.

Lowry returning to Houston is intriguing and it speaks to the aggressive nature of the Rockets front office, but the Raptors can offer more money and it's going to be hard for him to turn it down.

The Raptors have "undeniable confidence" in keeping free agent Kyle Lowry according ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

It sounds like talks have started in the $12 million range per year according to Stein. Expect this story to move quickly as he's the best point guard that's available as a free agent. His value would remain constant staying in Toronto and Greivis Vasquez would remain a low-end option in deeper leagues.

General manager Masai Ujiri is expected to make an aggressive bid to keep unrestricted free agent Kyle Lowry at midnight on Tuesday morning.

The Raptors are hoping to get a deal done even before teams like the Heat or Rockets even get a chance to make their case. This isn't an Earth-shattering update on Lowry and he's obviously the top priority. In other words, the longer it takes to sign Lowry, the chances of him returning get smaller.

Ric Bucher reported Friday that a sign-and-trade sending free agent Kyle Lowry to the Heat is "imminent."

Bucher's record is somewhere between bad and terrible and he has been known to chase a bad bet all the way to the end. Howard Beck seemed to be behind the report and that gave it some instant credibility, but that lasted all of about 20 minutes before Bucher apologized for yet his most recent blunder.

In addition to the Toronto Raptors, unrestricted free agent Kyle Lowry is drawing interest from the Rockets, Lakers, and Heat.

Coming off a season in which he averaged 17.9 points, 2.4 three-pointers, 4.7 rebounds, and 7.4 assists, it seems as if Lowry's value is being brought into the "elite" free agency category. The Raptors have pledged to go full-force after Lowry this season, but he could be getting priced out of what they'd like to pay and he could end up being a solid backup option to teams that aren't able to land LeBron James or Carmelo Anthony in free agency.

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri stated that the team will be going "full force after Kyle Lowry" this offseason.

Lowry will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, and after a solid season with the Raptors averaging 17.9 points, 2.4 three-pointers, 4.7 rebounds, and 7.4 assists, he'll be a popular name in the rumor mill. The Knicks and Heat have been linked to Lowry, but it's worth noting that he's stated he "loves" his situation in Toronto, and the Raptors will make re-signing him a top priority.
Jun 23 - 4:07 PM

Free agent Kyle Lowry and the Heat have "mutual interest," according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Lowry is coming off a terrific season with the Raptors in which he averaged career-highs in points (17.9), 3-pointers (2.4), rebounds (4.7) and assists (7.4), while adding 1.5 steals and a stingy 2.5 turnovers in 36 minutes per game. He told beat writer Michael Grange in early May, "I love this situation [in Toronto]. It's as simple as that." Any dalliance with the Heat is complicated by Miami's salary-cap crunch -- in order to pay Lowry the $10+ million he'll earn annually as a free agent, at least one of Miami's Big 3 would have to opt out and restructure their contract this summer.

The Toronto Sun expects impending free agent Kyle Lowry to command a contract in the range of $11-$12 million annually.

It's not quite the max deal that point guards such as John Wall, Russell Westbrook and Derrick Rose got. But it's in line with the likes of Ty Lawson, Rajon Rondo, Steph Curry and Tony Parker. That may sound steep, but Lowry has emerged as a top-tier point guard, one that can carry a team on his back. He's going to get paid in a big way after leading the Raptors to 48 wins and a narrow defeat to the Nets in the playoffs.

Raptors GM Masai Ujiri said re-signing Kyle Lowry is a priority for the team.

Lowry is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, but Ujiri is committed to keeping the point guard in Toronto after a season in which he averaged 17.9 points, 2.4 threes, 4.7 boards, 7.4 dimes, and 1.5 steals. "It's very important," Masai said of re-signing Lowry. "Negotiating is easy for me if we want Kyle here and Kyle wants to be here. We're optimistic and stuff will happen." Lowry will undoubtedly receive offers this summer after taking a big step in his growth this season, but it's sounding like the Raptors will make every effort to prevent him from leaving.
May 6 - 12:36 PM

Kyle Lowry will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but he implied after Sunday's Game 7 loss that he'll re-sign with the Raptors.

"I’ve had the best core of teammates I've ever had in my life and my career," said Lowry. "This is only the start for us and the Raptors organization." Lowry was the subject of trade speculation for much of the 2013-14 season and he'll draw plenty of interest as one of the summer's premier free agents, but it sounds like Toronto has the inside track to retain him after his career-best season with averages of 17.9 points, 2.4 threes, 4.7 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 1.5 steals.

Kyle Lowry hit just 4-of-16 shots in the Raptors' Game 6 loss to the Nets on Friday, finishing with 11 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and two triples.

Lowry got beat up by a gimpy Deron Williams and racked up five fouls on the night, but still logged 38 minutes as the guy that needs to carry the load if the Raptors are going to down the Nets. DeMar DeRozan kept the game from getting even more out of hand than it was for most of the night, scoring 28 points on 8-of-18 shooting (10-of-11 FTs) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two threes in the loss.
