Now, Sixers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey is working on landing another notable star in Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry. Since the Raptors began struggling at the beginning of the 2020-2021 NBA season, Lowry was getting thrown in the mix of trade rumors. With the trade deadline coming up on Thursday, the Sixers have consistently led the pursuit for landing Lowry alongside the Miami Heat.
But according to a recent report from Bleacher Report’s Jason Dumas, the Sixers believe it might be a longshot to land the North Philly native. Despite his age, Lowry will not come cheap and will reportedly seek a two-year extension moving forward.
