Rumor: Kyle Lowry to the Dallas Mavericks

The Toronto Raptors may have a very different roster next season as changes are expected for the franchise after a dismal season. Their franchise's greatest player of all-time, Kyle Lowry is one of the players who could be changing teams as the veteran point-guard is a free-agent. Rumors has the Dallas Mavericks and Mark Cuban having interest in signing the Philadelphia native.

The 35-year-old PG is still getting it done at his age, appearing in 46 games last season and recording 17.2 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 7.3apg, while shooting 40% from deep. There's still a lot to be decided at this point if Lowry will be signing one more contract in Toronto to retire a Raptor, however, all signs are pointing to him leaving the team. If the Mavericks don't get his name on a dotted line, expect the Philadelphia 76ers or Miami Heat to pounce.

The Mavs apparently want Lowry to come in and take some ball-handling pressure off Luka Doncic, and have Lowry available to guard the smaller guards across the NBA. This would save Doncic some energy for the offensive end and his numbers could get even better because of it next season.

Lowry is one of the biggest names on the free-agent market, and look for Mavs owner Mark Cuban to get creative to bring him down to the Lonestar state as the Mavs are going to need more than one superstar to get the job done.
