Kyle Lowry Seeking Three-Year, $90M Deal

Jul 27, 2021 1:52 PM

Kyle Lowry is seeking a three-year, $90 million contract in free agency, sources tell Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia inquirer.

The New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks, New Orleans Pelicans, Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat are expected to pursue Lowry in free agency. The 76ers, Heat and Lakers sought a trade for Lowry at last season's deadline and he then sought a two-year extension worth at least $25 million per year.

The 76ers and Lakers would need to acquire Lowry via a sign-and-trade deal. Ben Simmons makes $33 million next season, which would help the 76ers and Toronto Raptors facilitate a deal. 

“If there’s a sign-and-trade [with the Sixers] that can be done that can get him there, and he gets $25 to $30 million, he will consider it,” a source said.

The Knicks are believed to be preparing a two-year deal between $20 million and $30 million per season.

Heat, Kings, Knicks, Rockets, 76ers 'Most Aggressive' In Pursuing Damian Lillard Trade

Jul 20, 2021 8:36 AM

The Miami Heat, Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers have recently been the "most aggressive suitors" for a trade with the Portland Trail Blazers for Damian Lillard.

Lillard has said he expects to remain with the Blazers next season, but he has become clear in his desire for more urgency in their efforts to contend for a title.

Should Portland eventually decide to trade Lillard, executives in the NBA expect the Blazers to receive a return for Lillard comparable to what the Brooklyn Nets sent the Rockets for Harden. Lillard is signed for four more seasons at $176 million total.

Dennis Schroder Seeks Bigger Role, Payday Than Lakers Appear Willing To Provide

Jul 14, 2021 3:25 PM

Dennis Schroder is seeking a greater role and salary than the Los Angeles Lakers appear willing to offer as he hits free agency.

Schroder declined a four-year, $84 million extension offer from the Lakers during the season.

The Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks are expected to pursue Schroder, who could be acquired via a sign-and-trade with the cooperation of the Lakers. The Knicks have enough cap space to sign Schroder outright.

The Lakers acquired Schroder from the Oklahoma City Thunder last offseason for their 2020 first round pick and Danny Green.
