76ers, Heat, Clippers Interested In Trading For Kyle Lowry

Feb 25, 2021 10:01 AM

The Philadelphia 76ers, Miami Heat and Los Angeles Clippers have interest in trading Kyle Lowry, sources tell Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

A source says Lowry's preference is to play for the 76ers and that they might be able to get a deal done with the Toronto Raptors.

Lowry is on an expiring contract after nine seasons with the Raptors.

According to a source, the Raptors would like to reward Lowry for his years of service with the team by giving him an opportunity to compete for another title.

Lowry is a native of Philadelphia and would give the 76ers a perimeter playmaker.

The Clippers, meanwhile, would allow Lowry to reunite with Kawhi Leonard and Serge Ibaka. Lowry is also close friends with Ty Lue and Chauncey Billups.

In free agency, Lowry will seek a contract of $60 million over two years.

Feb 22, 2021 8:08 AM

Paul George was held out of the final 2:50 of a close game against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday due to a minutes restriction. The Nets won the game over the Los Angeles Clippers by a final score of 112-108.

George had 34 points, seven assists and six rebounds in 32 minutes in his second game since returning from a seven-game absence. 

"Man, I think you know the answer to that," George said when asked how tough it was to sit out the end.

George said his toe, which was diagnosed as having a bone edema, is not at risk of becoming inflamed by playing again.

"I'm clear, I'm good to go, as of now," George said. "It's an afterthought. I'm healthy, and I feel good."
