Kyle Lowry will be a free agent this offseason, but he would like to re-sign with the Toronto Raptors.

Lowry became one of the best point guards in the Eastern Conference this season with an All-Star caliber performance.

"I love this place, it's as simple as that," said Lowry.

"The most important difference I've seen in Kyle is his ability to lose weight," said Patrick Patterson, who was comparing the differences in Lowry between his time with the Rockets and Raptors.

"This was the perfect storm for the Raptors. Lowry was in the last year of his contract and showed up for camp in the best shape of his life," said one source to ESPN's Marc Stein.
