This past summer, Toronto Raptors point guard, Kyle Lowry, re-signed with the team for three years and $100 million. While he signed with the Raptors, he did entertain other teams. According to San Antonio Express-News, Lowry liked what he saw from the San Antonio Spurs.
I would have loved to come here, but it didn’t work out. The conversation didn’t happen. If the conversation happened, I would tell you. But it didn’t happen. Not saying that I wanted out, but I did look at teams to see what was going on.
One of the reasons the Spurs were so appealing to Kyle Lowry was their head coach, Gregg Popovich. Lowry is just like the rest of the league in that they’re chasing after the Spurs, so it’s no surprise Popovich intrigued Lowry so much.
The Spurs weren’t the only teams after Kyle Lowry this summer. Before the Houston Rockets landed Chris Paul, they were also interested in Lowry. The Philadelphia 76ers were also rumored to be willing to offer Lowry a large contract.
To start out this 2017-2018 year, Lowry has not been his normal self. In four games he’s averaging 12.8 points, 6.5 assists, and 3.8 rebounds. While his assist and rebound numbers are normal, he is only shooting 37.5 percent from the field and 27.6 percent from the field.
While Lowry is struggling to start, the Raptors are sitting at 2-2. Expect Kyle Lowry to start shooting better, and the Raptors to start moving up in the standings as the season goes on.
