Adrian Wojnarowski Reveals Why Toronto Raptors Didn’t Trade Kyle Lowry

During his time with the Toronto Raptors, Kyle Lowry has developed into a multiple-time All-Star and an amazing leader on the team. While Kyle Lowry is forever immortalized in Toronto, it is possible that he will leave in free agency to go to a team where he can win a championship.

While most people would think that Kyle Lowry would go to a contender, it seems as though there are up-and-coming teams that are interested in his services as well. A recent report by NBA Insider Marc Stein suggested that the New Orleans Pelicans could target Kyle Lowry.

Marc Stein mentions that the Pelicans are "desperate" to get Zion Williamson to the playoffs. Kyle Lowry could help them achieve that goal. Having Kyle Lowry on the team to pair with Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson would give the team a big three, and Lowry would provide the playoff experience and the leadership that the team needs. Having Lowry on the team means that scorers often get easier looks as well, which could help Ingram and Williamson.

 One can easily see the appeal of having Kyle Lowry as a mentor for a young core, and perhaps adding him to the New Orleans Pelicans roster can help the team get back to being in the playoffs.
