Recently signed Miami Heat guard Kyle Lowry revealed his retirement plan and his potential homecoming to Toronto, adding that the city remains his home.
Lowry spoke to Marc J Spears of the Undefeated about his future, joining the Miami Heat last summer, and how he expects his career to end, talking about the Toronto Raptors.
Kyle Lowry has had a pretty successful tenure with the Toronto Raptors. In his nine years with them, Lowry was a 6x All-Star, an All-NBA pick in 2015–16. More importantly, he brought to the franchise its first-ever championship in 2019.
“Everybody says you could just live in Canada, but you’d have to get a Canadian citizenship to live there. And I don’t think I would’ve lived there for the rest of my life.
“But I’ll be able to go back. That’s still home. Like I’ve said, and I’ll say it now, I will sign a one-day contract and I’ll retire as a Toronto Raptor. That is my everything,” Lowry said.
He averaged 17.5 points, 7.1 assists and 4.9 rebounds during his time in Toronto and played a key role in the franchise’s lone title in 2019. Lowry also created a beautiful bond with the city off the court during his nine-year tenure.
