We saw a report last month saying that the Raptors were considering moving on from Lowry. The team is 17-19 and has lost most of their top players from their championship team. Now could very reasonably be the time to move on from Lowry, who turns 35 later this month. The trade deadline is on March 25.
Lowry is averaging 18.0 points and 7.0 assists per game while making 40.3 percent of his threes. If Lowry does get traded, he reportedly has one Eastern Conference team in mind.
