Raptors and Knicks Reportedly Working on a Trade for Kyle Lowry

by December 12, 2013


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.”
