Raptors and Knicks Reportedly Working on a Trade for Kyle Lowry


It’s no secret that Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry is being aggressively shopped. According to the latest reports, the New York Knicks are showing interest in a possible trade (which would send Raymond Felton to Canada). Per ESPN: “The Raptors, fresh off their deal that dispatched Rudy Gay to Sacramento, are trying to construct a deal that routes point guard Kyle Lowry to the Knicks, sources with knowledge of the discussions said. Toronto and New York combined on a deal in the offseason that sent Andrea Bargnani to New York. It was reported Sunday that the Raptors’ next move, after finding a taker for Gay, would be finding a new home for Lowry, who is in the final year of his contract at a palatable $6.2 million. If the talks continue to progress, sources say, New York’s injured Raymond Felton would likely have to be included to go to Toronto in addition to at least one other Knick. Players who signed new contracts in July are eligible to be traded starting Sunday.”

    lowry for felton and tim hardaway jr and cash considerations straight up

  • Dagger

    If I’m Ujiri, I’d only do this if Tim Hardaway Jr. is included. And I’d hope that Felton can be packaged in another deal.

  • SwissArmyKnife5

    As a Knicks fan I’m with this 100%…Felton has been garbage, the worst starting pg in the NBA

  • SwissArmyKnife5

    They can add Hardaway to the deal….J.R is signed, plus Shump is the project…somebody has to go, for the sake of improving I vote we keep JR, and Shump.

    even tho i like shump. and him and derozan are the illest. il give you a break and take jr.

  • patrick

    why aggressively shopped? i’d say he’s being alrite from what i’ve seen..not sure how vasquez compares to him, need to see more of his play

  • patrick

    I don’t want Felton for Lowry. I say Lowry is better. Why does Ujiri want to get rid of Lowry if he’s in an expiring contract? And isn’t Felton’s contract bigger? (Or is it smaller?)

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    Lowry for Bargnani…If we’re gonna tank, we have to tank hard ;)

  • Dagger

    He’s in his late twenties, he’s good but not great, and he’s helping his team win. If you’re rebuilding through the draft, that piece has got to go.

    Damn Raymond, he was straight a couple seasons ago. Lowery is a score first type of PG which ain’t the best solution for Carmelo, lowery is still good though but I think they need to give Beno Udrih some more time he is good distributor, takes care of the ball and he can shoot when all else fails.

  • Dagger

    Ujiri will want a young asset in return.

    Felton’s contract is about half the size of Lowry’s.

    Felton would probably be moved as part of another deal. Considering his contract, he still has some value.

  • TTN

    Send Bargnani back? Haha thats funny I think Toronto would stop playing all together before they took him back, they nearly died trying to get rid of him.

  • ATL dynamite

    Although we already had Danny Ferry, I would still wish Ujiri is on our squad. Who doesn’t? Everything he does is on point!!!

  • kilahchris

    Raymond Felton is a better player than Kyle Lowry, I do not see how this deal makes any sense for the knicks!?

  • Otis

    Ujiri must wake up every day and thank god for the Knicks

  • 604ricy

    How many picks does raptors have for next year?

  • Markus437

    Only 2, their 1st rounder and OKC’s 2nd rounder

  • 604ricy

    Why dont they trt to get more first rounder for lowry instead of felton/shamp?

    Might as well all in on 2014 draft.

    I still cant figure out wiggins… he might be be getting overhyped in MHO..

  • 604ricy

    Wth… only one first round in stacked draft???

  • Saleem Rainman


  • Matty Jay

    im hoping Knicks are only doing this trade to make a better offer on Rondo.. or whichever big name PG they were going after

  • RKJ92

    Ujiri already said he needs either Tim Hardaway and the 2018 1st round pick, or Shump, and the 2018 1st round pick. Sad part is I think he will get away with it too.. lmao

  • RKJ92

    I wouldn’t hate that at all, but I still want Ujiri to fleece that lethal weapon front office of Dolan and company LOL

  • Craig Sager

    i really dont like felton, showed his true colours in portland and its coming back to get him

  • candlewood jay

    Whatever happened to Otis Smith?

  • brothasdontsurf

    Will a marquee free agent ever join the Raptors?

  • aндрій базилевич

    this is why brooklyn might be the logical step…

  • aндрій базилевич

    we’ll all wake up in the morning and this will be just a dream …as we would likely trade for the nets bojan bogdanovic and their first round draft pick instead…

    Kevin Durant commented about liking Toronto.

  • SCSA

    You sir are an idiot for making that statement. Have u seen Felton’s performance lately?

  • kilahchris

    look at their career numbers, not just a a few games where the entire knicks team sucked!!!! I question your baskeball IQ

  • Wings23

    Shoulda paid that man JL7

  • Pok

    Someone give Masai Ujiri a raise already!
