Raptors and Clippers Linked to Kyle Lowry Deal

According to multiple reports the Toronto Raptors have been chatting internally about trading long-time Raptor Kyle Lowry. The move would certainly be a changing of the guard for the franchise as it would then be handing over the keys to Fred VanVleet, Pascal Siakam and OG Anunoby.

While this move wouldn't come as a complete shock to the same fan base who saw DeMar DeRozan traded, the timing of the move would certainly be, as some had expected Lowry to re-sign next offseason.

According to Jake Fischer of the Bleacher Report, he sees the Los Angeles Clippers as the top landing spot for Lowry's services. Our sources at MLSE did confirm trading Lowry is certainly on the table at this point.

While Lowry to the Clippers makes sense to some regard, do the Clips even have enough to complete a deal? It's not likely Bobby Webster and Masai Ujiri of the Raptors are sold on players like Ivica Zubac and Luke Kennard.

Perhaps a third team could be involved to give the Raptors exactly what they are looking for when dealing away their franchise's best player of all-time.

Interesting times for Raptors fans as they can't even attend a home game and the team may be trading away the face of the franchise.
