Article Summary:

Kyle Lowry has reportedly signed a three-year, $85 million deal to join the Miami Heat through a sign-and-trade arrangement with the Toronto Raptors, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania. The Pelicans, Mavericks, Knicks, 76ers and Lakers were all linked to Lowry at some point leading up to free agency, but Butler’s presence and a strong financial offer helped the Heat secure the player they’ve coveted for months. Dragic could serve as an effective bridge point guard for the Raptors as they attempt to figure out what comes next, while Achiuwa is exactly the sort of athletic forward that the Raptors have done well developing in recent years. The Raptors will look like a new team moving forward, while the Heat have firmly re-inserted themselves into the championship picture with yet another major offseason move.
