According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, three title contenders - reigning champions LA Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and last year's finalists Miami Heat - have expressed their interest in Kyle Lowry's services.

The Toronto Raptors point guard has had an accomplished career so far, winning the title in 2019 and racking up six NBA All-Star appearances and one in the 2015-16 All-NBA team.

Lowry has shined for the Toronto Raptors this season as well, putting up 17 points, five rebounds and seven assists per game on 39.5% shooting from behind the 3-point arc.

All three of Kyle Lowry's suitors have been on the lookout for a point guard since the off-season. NBA trade rumors have strongly linked the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat to Kyle Lowry for several weeks now.

The LA Lakers are the latest entrant in the race for Kyle Lowry's signature, which means the former Houston Rockets guard is all set to move to a stronger roster.

Kyle Lowry has made his name, thanks to his gritty defense, fabulous playmaking and incredible shooting prowess.

A Raptors fan favorite, Kyle Lowry started at the point guard position for the Canada-based franchise for nine straight seasons. The Philadelphia-born star played a key role in the Toronto Raptors' 2019 triumph, averaging 15 points, six assists and 1.3 steals during the playoff run.

As per numerous NBA trade rumors, the Toronto Raptors have reportedly asked for Tyrese Maxey, Matisse Thybulle and first-round picks from the Sixers for Kyle Lowry's services.

The 76ers value Maxey and Thybulle, so it will be intriguing to see if Dary Morey accedes to the Raptors' demands.
