NBA Awards: Kyle Lowry finishes 8th in Teammate of the Year voting

NBA Awards: Kyle Lowry finishes 8th in Teammate of the Year voting

More like Kyle Lovablwry. Kyle Lowry’s surly on-court demeanor and curtness with the media apparently don’t make him any less likable among his peers. At Monday’s NBA Awards, Dallas’ Dirk Nowitzki took home the Tyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year award; Lowry finished eight in voting, fifth in first-place votes with 31. Voting for Twyman-Stokes Teammate of the Year shows how special 2011 champion Mavs' locker room was. pic.twitter.com/08YMz0Drvr— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) June 27, 2017 Lowry finishing so high in a league-wide vote obviously speaks highly of his...

NBA Rumors: After Timberwolves Trade, Kyle Lowry, Jrue Holiday Or Other Point Guard On Team’s Radar

Among them are Toronto Raptors All-Star free agent Kyle Lowry and former All-Star Jrue Holiday, in addition to several other veteran players from around the league.Click here to continue and read more...

Player Review: Taking stock of Norman Powell

Player Review: Taking stock of Norman Powell

Is this the new norm for one of the most exciting players on the Raptors’ roster? Few would have expected two years ago that Norman Powell would be one of the more important players on the Raptors roster. Yes, the team starts and ends with Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, and we often talk of the potential of Jonas Valanciunas in the next breath. Newcomer Serge Ibaka changed the team’s calculus quite a bit. But Powell’s development has added a more intriguing question: just how good can he be? In his second season with the Raptors, one spent fully with Toronto (and not in Mississauga...

Masai Ujiri addresses the media, talks NBA Draft and Kyle Lowry

Masai Ujiri addresses the media, talks NBA Draft and Kyle Lowry

It’s a couple days until the NBA Draft, so Toronto got to hear a few words from the president. The Raptors are a boring team, managerially-speaking. This is by design. Team president Masai Ujiri rarely says anything of significance, preferring instead to re-state the facts, bide his time, and play it cautious. When Ujiri does let loose with something that seems incendiary — e.g. the “culture reset” a couple months back — the resultant action is eventually buried in obfuscating language, and we circle back to the boring ethos. While one third of the NBA is consistently on fire, the...

Raptors HQ Facebook Live: Instant reaction to the latest Kyle Lowry rumours

Sean Woodley goes live on Facebook to discuss tonight’s Toronto Star report about Kyle Lowry’s free agency. On Monday night, the Toronto Star’s Bruce Arthur published a story discussing the Raptors’ place in the NBA’s silly season. One passage in particular has made the rounds across the internet. “Even if the organization did manage to make a deal for a big-time player, Kyle Lowry is a free agent, and multiple league sources say the all-star point guard has been grumbling about dissatisfaction with the Raptors for months. As of mid-May other teams were being told Lowry had...

Rumor: Kyle Lowry not re-signing in Toronto?

Rumor: Kyle Lowry not re-signing in Toronto?

A disgruntled free agent looking for a change of scenery, perhaps? The offseason rumor mill (and even trade market) is in full swing, and a new rumor regarding Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry surfaced this evening. According to RealGM, opposing teams were told that Lowry has been growing unhappy with his situation in Toronto. Lowry has been "grumbling about dissatisfaction with the Raptors for months", according to multiple sources. Rival teams were being told Lowry had “zero interest” in returning to Toronto as recently as mid-May. The Raptors, for their part, had no intention...

NBA Trades: The Sixers-Celtics trade is probably a good thing for the Raptors

NBA Trades: The Sixers-Celtics trade is probably a good thing for the Raptors

Boston and Philly made a big trade. In the short term at least, it’s probably going to help the Raptors. Boston dealing the first-overall pick to the Sixers has ramifications for the Raptors far beyond shaking up the landscape of the Atlantic Division. Among the many questions post-trade: How does the Boston/Philly deal impact Kyle Lowry's July? The Sixers are obviously no longer an option.— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) June 18, 2017 Before the trade materialized over the weekend, Philadelphia offered the most threatening combination of open cap space and positional need of any...

Player Review: The Franchise, Kyle Lowry

Player Review: The Franchise, Kyle Lowry

Don’t let his ill-timed injury fool you: Kyle Lowry was incredible this season. Kyle Lowry’s 2016-17 season will be forgotten, a victim of the memory-wiping syndrome recency bias tends to cause. Were it not for a pair of inopportunely timed injuries that ultimately contributed to the Raptors unceremonious exit from the playoffs, Lowry might still be lauded as the best point guard in the Eastern Conference. Instead, his career season will be remembered, ultimately, as a disappointment. Rather than the fan base clamouring for the Raptors to swiftly re-sign him this summer, some...

Player Review: Remembering the odd man out Delon Wright

Player Review: Remembering the odd man out Delon Wright

After hitting a few road bumps to start his NBA career, Delon Wright was a pleasant surprise for the Raptors in 2016-17 Selected with the 20th overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, many Raptors fans didn’t think much of Delon Wright. After all, Kyle Lowry had already begun his descent into the upper-tier of the NBA’s top point guards and hometown boy Cory Joseph returned north of the border as a free-agent weeks after Wright was drafted. But two years later, Wright has quietly developed into a very serviceable player for the Dinos. The younger brother of ex-NBA player Dorrell Wright,...

Big day at the BioSteel Centre today as the Raptors welcome six more prospects in for a pre-draft workout.
