With the Toronto Raptors playing excellent basketball, they have pulled Kyle Lowry from trade conversations.
The Raptors' management is confident that they have a chance of signing Lowry long-term in the offseason.
The Raptors could readdress the situation if they fall in the standings before the deadline, but the front office remains confident.
“But that won’t happen,” said the source said confidently. “We’re winning this.”
