For the past few seasons, Lowry and his backcourt mate Demar Derozan have built the Raptors from the ground up and have become stars in the process. The number one priority this off-season seemed to be locking up Lowry and General Manager Masai Ujiri made it happen. This morning, the Raptors formally reintroduced Lowry in a press conference and he shared some thoughts on his and the Raptors’ future together.
Following from Dave Zarum of Sportsnet.
“I’m back here for a reason,” Lowry acknowledged on Friday. “They believe in me and I believe in them. It’s a great partnership we have and I want to make sure we continue to get better. I’m all in.
He went on to say that he plans to have input in all facets of the club, from coaching to personnel, to ownership decisions, and will take pride in helping the Raptors’ young players develop as well. “I’m going to take this city to new heights, this country to new heights.”
