So, as we head into the final day of the 2019 trade window, here are the biggest rumors circling the league.
Kyle Lowry would accept the Raptors' decision to trade him
Over the last 24 hours, Kyle Lowry has been discussed as part of a huge trade between the Toronto Raptors and Memphis Grizzlies. Lowry has been with Toronto since 2012, and while speaking to ESPN about his future, the 32-year-old stated he wasn't worried about being traded ahead of the impending deadline:
I think that's just how they work, and they operate. They make moves, and they make moves for the best of the organization. If they do something, that will be their feeling to whatever the organization thinks is best for them. Reassurance would be great, but at the end of the day, they don't have to call me. My job is, as a player, to go out here and do my job. If they want to call me, that'd be great. I would appreciate it. But if they don't, I understand
Lowry has been a regular starter for the Raptors this season, averaging 14.2 points, 9.2 assists and 4.4 rebounds per game.
