Free Agency, Masai Ujiri, Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors
Even if the organization did manage to make a deal for a big-time player, Kyle Lowry is a free agent, and multiple league sources say the all-star point guard has been grumbling about dissatisfaction with the Raptors for months. As of mid-May other teams were being told Lowry had “zero interest” in returning to Toronto, even if the Raptors offered a maximum five-year deal. Philadelphia’s draft move means they can draft dynamic guard Markelle Fultz, which closes a door on the 76ers pursuing Lowry. Which, for the record, was always considered a bit of a fan dance by plugged-in NBA sources.

 

“He’s been a part of our organization, and he says he wants to come back,” Ujiri told the media Tuesday morning. “I know, speculation … with the article. We all have ups and downs. There are times when he’s been down, and there are times when we are down. It happens to every team, every player. People go through it. “I know what Kyle has told me. Kyle has been here working out – he actually just left – so I know what he has been telling me. I can only believe what he tells me, not the famous ‘sources.’”
