General manager Masai Ujiri said that Kyle Lowry has told the Raptors that he wants to return to Toronto.
On Monday night, Lowry tweeted that a report claiming he had "zero interest" in re-signing with the Raptors was completely false. "I know what Kyle has told me. I can only believe what he tells me," said Ujiri. The reality is that Lowry doesn't have many options. The Sixers were rumored to be interested, but have since traded for the No. 1 pick in order to draft Markelle Fultz. There aren't many other teams with the necessary cap space willing to offer Lowry $30-plus million annually. One organization to keep an eye on is San Antonio. They may be able to create enough room to make a competitive offer. Jun 20 - 12:55 PM

Kyle Lowry took to Twitter on Monday night to deny a report that claimed he has "zero interest" in re-signing with the Raptors.

Bruce Arthur of The Toronto Star penned a column that ran Monday morning in which he claimed: "As of mid-May other teams were being told Lowry had 'zero interest' in returning to Toronto, even if the Raptors offered a maximum five-year deal." Later that night, Lowry responded thusly, "I don't do this ever but: Don't believe what you hear !! Especially if it didn't come from me, and that bs FOR SURE didn't come from me." The Raps can offer up to $205 million over five years. The question is if they are willing to make that type of financial commitment to a 31-year old.

ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the 76ers are no longer an option for free agent PG Kyle Lowry.

This isn't a surprise with Philly fully expected to draft Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick. Lowry should still have several suitors and is expected to command a max deal this summer, but the Raptors are the favorites to bring him back to Toronto -- they can offer him up to $205 million over five seasons compared to $150 million over four years from other teams. It's still early, but San Antonio and Denver have been floated around as potential destinations if he leaves Toronto.

Kyle Lowry had a meeting with DeMar DeRozan, Norman Powell and coach Dwane Casey this week in the Bay Area, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

Lowry officially declined his player option on May 12, which is not surprising at all after his terrific play and the rising salary cap. While general manager Masai Ujiri has talked about a culture change this offseason, the Raptors will be doing all they can to bring back the 2017 All-Star guard. He'll be an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Kyle Lowry's agency announced on Thursday that Lowry has officially opted out of his contract with the Raptors.

No surprise here, as it was widely known that Lowry was going to opt out and hit free agency this summer. Lowry was set to make $12 million in 2017-18 had he not exercised his option. Now, he can re-sign with the Raptors for up to $205 million over five seasons. Other teams can offer approximately $150 million over four years. The Raps would obviously like to keep their All-Star point guard in the fold, but are they willing to max him out?

The 76ers plan to offer Kyle Lowry "a lucrative contract" this summer, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

There are a lot of ties here for the North Philly native. On top of going to nearby Villanova, general manager Bryan Colangelo was the one who brought Lowry to Toronto back in 2012, and they have remained friends since, as well. The 76ers have said they'd prefer a point guard capable of shooting threes to help spacing for Ben Simmons (foot), so Lowry does fit the bill there. He's coming off career-highs 3.2 treys per game, 41.2 percent from deep and 37.4 minutes per game in his age-31 season. The Raptors see retaining Lowry as a priority and are likely the favorites to have him next year.
May 10 - 3:22 PM

Raptors president Masai Ujiri confirmed that Toronto will make re-signing Kyle Lowry an off-season priority.

"It’s our jobs to try and get Kyle to come back and do it the best way that we possibly can. We want him back, he’s been a huge part of the success here," said Ujiri. At this point, the question is whether the Raps are willing to pay him the max, which would sum to approximately $205 million over five seasons. In the final year of that deal, Lowry would be 36 years old and would earn north of $40 million. Serge Ibaka, P.J. Tucker and Patrick Patterson are also free agents. Ujiri admitted keeping all four in Toronto is "unrealistic."

Kyle Lowry will reportedly consider signing with a team in the Western Conference this summer.

Lowry, who confirmed on Monday that he will opt out of the final year of his contract, expressed frustration after getting knocked out of the playoffs by LeBron James and the Cavs for a second straight season. However, Lowry should remember that out West the Warriors have a young, dominant core that will likely stick together for the foreseeable future. Prior to a late-season injury, Lowry was putting up phenomenal fantasy numbers in 2016-17. It will be interesting to see where he lands this summer.

Kyle Lowry confirmed on Monday that he will opt out of the final year of his contract.

Lowry is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and could command a five-year deal for around $200 million if he wants to stick around in Toronto -- other teams can only offer deals up to four years. However, the Raptors may be hesitant to give that kind of money to the 31-year-old PG, as there have been reports that they are considering a rebuild. Lowry said he hasn't thought about free agency yet, but it sounds like it's far from a lock that he will be wearing a Raptors uniform in 2017-18. Lowry averaged 22.4 points, 7.0 assists, 4.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 3.2 triples during the regular season before fading in the playoffs.
May 8 - 12:33 PM

Kyle Lowry (sprained left ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's Game 4 matchup against the Cavs.

With Lowry on the sidelines, Cory Joseph will likely be earning another start, while DeMar DeRozan will run the show on offense. Joseph scored just four points on 2-of-12 shooting to go with three rebounds, six dimes, one steal and one block through 33 minutes as a starter on Friday, and simply put, he'll need to be much better for the Raptors to have any shot of taking this series to a Game 5.
May 7 - 2:28 PM

Kyle Lowry (ankle) is still doubtful for Game 4 vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

"I don't think he's going to go," Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Casey's comments were made while Lowry was on the court testing out his ankle, but even if the Raptors clear the All-Star PG, DFS owners will likely want to steer clear because he would likely be very limited. Expect Cory Joseph to start if Lowry can't go. DeMar DeRozan and Norman Powell would also get a nice boost.

Kyle Lowry (ankle) said he is "probably doubtful" for Game 4 vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

"I don’t think I’ll be able to play," said Lowry on Saturday afternoon. He believes he aggravated the ankle injury by trying to work out in the lead up to Game 3 on Friday. He did add: "It's not looking great, but I'm not giving up on it." Cory Joseph started in place of Lowry in Game 3 and struggled, scoring just four points on 2-of-12 shooting in 33 minutes. Backup PG Delon Wright had two points and three assists in 12 minutes off the bench.
May 6 - 1:31 PM

Kyle Lowry (ankle) is active for Game 3 against the Cavs on Friday.

He went through his warmup with the training staff and we still don't know his status. Lowry was reportedly a little gimpy in the layup line, so he's almost certainly going to be limited. He also limped back to the locker room after the layup lines. Cory Joseph and Delon Wright may also have to step up if Lowry taps out. Stay tuned.
May 5 - 6:56 PM

Kyle Lowry (ankle) remains a game-time decision for Game 3 on Friday.

Earlier today, he was still dealing with some swelling in his ankle sprain from Game 2. Lowry is almost certainly going to be at less than 100 percent, but he said he'll "fight through anything" at shootaround this morning. If he can't go, Cory Joseph and Delon Wright should get the point guard minutes.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Joseph had a great stat line on Wednesday, although 18 of his 22 points came in garbage time. If he starts, we can’t expect the same production, but he returned 0.70 FD ppm in 102.3 minutes alongside DeRozan, Ibaka, and Powell this season with an 18.1% usage rate. He’d be a nice value.
May 5 - 5:22 PM

Kyle Lowry (ankle) did not participate in shootaround and will be a game-time decision for Game 3 Friday night vs. Cleveland.

This is not surprising news, as the situation appeared to be trending in this direction since Lowry initially sprained the ankle on Wednesday night in Game 2. "You know me, I'll fight through anything. I'm going to try to play. But we will see [later today]," said Lowry Friday morning. Lowry indicated it would come down to pain threshold and mobility, and that his biggest concern will be attempting cut. Cory Joseph will likely slide into the starting lineup if Lowry doesn't suit up. DeMar DeRozan would be asked to shoulder more of the offensive load.
