4 Backups Toronto Raptors can sign for Kyle Lowry
#2 Devin Harris (Dallas Mavericks)
Devin Harris is now 35 years old playing most of the last five seasons in Dallas Mavericks. He is currently day to day with a back problem. Devin Harris used to be a star point guard in the NBA. His best efforts came in a New Jersey Nets uniform especially in the 2008-09 season when he averaged 21.3 points per game and 6.9 assists per game.
Harris is averaging 15.5 minutes per game in the 35 games he has played this year. His experience running NBA offenses would be invaluable to the Toronto Raptors if Lowry’s back problems continue.
Harris only makes $2.3 million for the season so the trade options the Raptors could offer to satisfy the Mavericks would be both cheap and diverse. Second round draft picks, any combination of role players off the Raptors bench like Greg Monroe, Delon Wright, Lorenzo Brown and Malachi Richardson might be enough.
The real issue here is whether Devin Harris would be willing to leave Dallas for the Toronto Raptors as he has spent just under half his career in Dallas and is now in his third stint there.
