Raptors pursuing top-10 pick, making Lowry available

The Toronto Raptors are exploring all of their trade options in the hopes of acquiring a top-10 pick in the 2018 NBA draft, according to a report from the New York Times.

The Raptors don’t own any picks in the upcoming draft. The organization reportedly has its eyes on Kentucky guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

No one on the Raptors’ roster is off limits, and according to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, point guard Kyle Lowry is very available for the right price.

Lowry has two years and roughly $65 million left on his contract. He averaged 16.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.9 assists this past season.

The Raptors promoted assistant Nick Nurse to head coach after firing Dwane Casey. Toronto had the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference in 2018-19, but were swept by the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second-round of the playoffs.
