Patrick Beverley, now with the Milwaukee Bucks, vows to bring the heat against Kyle Lowry, who replaced him on the Philadelphia 76ers’ roster.

Beverley’s journey to the Bucks came after a trade deadline move from the 76ers, where he initially started the season.

Meanwhile, the 76ers secured Kyle Lowry after he became available following a buyout from the Charlotte Hornets.

The Bucks’ acquisition of Beverley was orchestrated by new head coach Doc Rivers, who shares a history with the tenacious guard from their time together with the Los Angeles Clippers.

On the other hand, 76ers head coach Nick Nurse, who won an NBA championship with Lowry in 2019, made sure to bring his former player to Philadelphia.

Despite understanding the rationale behind the moves, Beverley made it clear that he’s ready to bring his trademark intensity whenever he faces off against Lowry and the 76ers.

In a candid moment on his podcast, Beverley expressed his determination to challenge Lowry every time they meet on the court.

“I respect it, right,” Beverley said on the Pat Bev Pod, per Scott Polacek of Bleacher Report. “Doc [Rivers] came and got his guy—me—and [Nick] Nurse went and got his guy—Kyle. But now I see Nurse’s hand. Man, I’m on Kyle’s ass when we play Philly. Straight up. That’s just how it goes. That’s just how it goes, like, how dare you?”
