Raptors Talking Huge Trade Involving Lowry and Powell

The Toronto Raptors are heavy into trade talks with a number of teams and it seems like the two players who could be leaving town are point-guard Kyle Lowry and shooting-guard Norm Powell.

Adrian Wojnarowski confirmed on Tuesday that the team is talking trades on their two long-time Raptors and the Philadelphia 76ers would like to acquire both players. This deal would basically be the Raptors receiving anyone not named Simmons, Embiid or Harris from the 76ers.

The ESPN insider also confirmed the Miami Heat are hot after Lowry and there's also been teams in the western conference that have reached out about facilitating a trade.

One deal speculated is Lowry heading to the San Antonio Spurs to reunite with DeMar DeRozan meanwhile LaMarcus Aldridge and others would be heading to the Raptors.

While Powell has a player-option for next season at $11.6 million, Lowry is an unrestricted free-agent and is reportedly looking for a two-year extension worth around $20 million per season.

The Raptors have lost nine straight games including their latest to the mess of a Rockets team from Houston. Only two years removed from an NBA Championship, the Raptors roster is going to look drastically different as they try to sneak back into the playoff picture this season.
