The NBA offseason is officially here and there are plenty of talented free agents looking for a new home.
Count All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry among them. Several teams have reportedly expressed interest in landing Lowry in free agency.
Most teams thought they would be able to get him on a cheap deal if they could offer him a chance at an NBA title. However, a new report from Matt Moore of Action Network, Lowry reportedly wants to be PAID.
From the report:
Kyle Lowry is about to make an absolutely ridiculous amount of money for a 35-year-old non-All-NBA First Team guard.
There was some assumption from league sources that Lowry would be chasing a second ring in free agency. But while playoff or prospective playoff teams make up the list of suitors, the new operating assumption is that money will be the deciding factor for Lowry.
There will be no ring chasing under a minimum deal, in other words.
Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers are reportedly looking for a veteran guard. However, if Lowry wants top dollar, it’s unclear if the Lakers would be able to give him a deal he’s looking for.
Other teams like the New Orleans Pelicans and New York Knicks have also expressed interest in landing Lowry.
Where will he sign next?
