The New York Knicks are again interested in Kyle Lowry.

The Knicks were close to a trade for Lowry in December, but backed out of talks prior to a surge by Lowry and the Toronto Raptors. The Knicks and Raptors were discussing a trade involving Raymond Felton, Metta World Peace and a first round pick.

Lowry has been one of the NBA's best point guards over the past two months.

Lowry will be a free agent this offseason and the Raptors are unlikely to re-sign him.

Chad Ford of ESPN reports that the Raptors have been aggressive in discussing Lowry in trades.
