Lowry to the Knicks?

3 Replies

The Toronto Raptors and New York Knicks are discussing a trade involving Kyle Lowry.

Lowry is on an expiring contract and doesn’t figure to be part of the Raptors’ long-term plans.

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! reports that the Knicks also had interest in Andre Miller, but are now focusing on dealing for Lowry.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News reports that the Brooklyn Nets and Golden State Warriors are also interested in Lowry.


Rumor has it that the Knicks would include Raymond Felton and rookie Tim Hardaway. I am with the opinion that Ray must go to make this work and I am fine with that, but to trade the rookie is not what I would do. He is a player that could replace J.R. Smith when or if the Knicks decide to trade him away this coming deadline or the next offseason.

The only trade that makes sense for the Raptors is to add Hardaway or take another pick from the Knicks in 2018,19 or 20. These are the only draft picks available at the moment, and I am not sure that Lowry is worth that risk.

However, Kyle Lowry’s impact would help the Knicks in the backcourt. His toughness and ability to penetrate is what the Knicks were expecting from Felton, but have yet so see this year on a consistent basis.

    The fat point guard needs to go. He’s a backup, nothing more. Not too thrilled about Hard away, but he shows promise. Should have never resigned JR. But it’s the Knicks. This from a hometown, diehard fan.
    And while we’re at it, see if they’re any takers for Melo. Unless we can get another ” star” , no chip will be coming our way any time soon.

    I just read that Dolan vetoed the trade

      That was giving up too big a price for Lowry who isn’t an allstar. I see Felton and Metta but the rookie and another pick is crazy. It’s not like it’s CP3 or Irving. I admit Lowry is a big upgrade but IMO not worth that price. Plus he has an expiring contract which means he’ll probably want a big hike at the end of his contract that NY would have to match. This would basically be a rental.
