The guard of the Toronto Raptors Kyle Lowry is highly appreciated, which is evident from the teams, particularly the Miami Heat and the Philadelphia 76ers, who want to acquire the player.

Per Shams Charania of the Athletic via ClutchPoints:

“The Miami Heat and Philadelphia 76ers are leaders in pursuit to acquire Lowry and several rival team executives are monitoring the situation as well as which young player or asset either team could part with.”

The 2019 NBA champion is averaging 17.7 points, 5.6 rebounds and 7.4 assists per game for the Raptors this season. Toronto is dropping out of the playoff picture with an eight-game losing streak. The team occupies the eleventh place in the Eastern Conference with 17 wins and 25 losses.
