In his end-of-season presser this morning, Raptors President Masai Ujiri said that “it’s our jobs to get Kyle back.”
Ujiri went on to add that “(Lowry has) been a huge part of our success here. We want him back.” While the Raptors are facing some very tough decisions this offseason, none loom larger than Lowry’s free agency. He’s the team’s best player and they have a long and painful history of struggling whenever he’s off the floor. While the team would avoid a true rebuild by signing the point guard to a max contract this summer, rumors are abound that Lowry is considering a move to the Western Conference. It’s a franchise-altering decision point for both player and team, and this is shaping up as one of the biggest storylines of the summer.
