Potential Buyout Opens Door for Kyle Lowry's Contender Opportunity

Published January 24, 2024 at 12:16

The 2019 Raptors championship team is nearly dismantled. With Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby traded, only Chris Boucher remains. Kyle Lowry left for the Miami Heat in free agency, contributing to their postseason success. However, Miami, seeking upgrades, traded him to the Charlotte Hornets for Terry Rozier.

Although Charlotte doesn't plan an immediate buyout, they aim to trade Lowry for assets before potentially sending him to a contender, giving him a chance at another championship.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Charlotte has no immediate plans for a buyout but rather aims to trade Kyle Lowry, recouping assets before sending him to a contending team. If the second trade materializes, Lowry could have a final opportunity to lift a championship trophy.

Approaching 38, Lowry's stats reflect his age, but he maintains value with solid 3-point shooting. Miami's success highlights his veteran craftiness. Unlikely to stay in Charlotte, the Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns emerge as potential destinations for a player with Lowry's resume. This move likely precedes a second trade, placing Lowry on a team with a brighter short-term outlook.
