Kyle Lowry Reportedly Has Interest In Joining The Sixers

The All-Star point guard reportedly has interest in heading back to Philadelphia.

This offseason might be a homecoming of sorts for Kyle Lowry.

The Toronto Raptors' All-Star point guard is set to be a free agent and he reportedly will give consideration to joining the Philadelphia 76ers. Lowry, 31, is from Philly and played collegiately at Villanova.

The Sixers reportedly plan on offering him a max contract, too.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Sources have said the North Philly native has been interested in playing for the Sixers for some time. The speculation only heightened once Bryan Colangelo became the president of basketball operations in April 2016. As the Raptors general manager, Colangelo acquired Lowry in a trade from the Houston Rockets on July 11, 2012. The two have remained good friends since then.

And sources have always said that the Sixers planned to offer Lowry a lucrative contract this summer.

Toronto's management has said they want to keep Lowry, but him leaving wouldn't be a very big surprise. Reports say he's considering making a move to the Western Conference, too.
