Part of Lowry’s slow playing training camp was driven by an effort to maintain some control of his destiny. If the Raptors weren’t going to give him an extension, sources close to Lowry say, he was prepared to hold out and try and force a deal to a destination of his choosing rather than allow the club to control the timing. But it never came to that. Lowry was wise enough to recognize that $31 million payouts don’t come along every day for veterans heading into their 14th season, and the Raptors were sensible enough to avoid getting into a drawn out scrap with a player that has infused the franchise with his will and passion.
Storyline: Kyle Lowry Extension?
While the 2020 free agent class is remarkably weak, a key consideration is that the teams with space are overwhelmingly young and the Hawks, most notably, are not looking for a point guard with Trae Young on board. What’s more, of the six front offices with a clear path to more than $20 million in cap space, only the Knicks and Raptors had a realistic need at Lowry’s position next summer, and the rebuilding Knicks could prioritize a significantly younger point guard or someone at a different position.

Kyle Lowry, Raptors agree to extension

Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors have agreed on a one-year, $31 million contract extension that takes the five-time All-Star guard out of July’s free-agent market, agent Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports told ESPN. The extension guarantees Lowry two years and $64 million on the books — including the $33.3 million left on his expiring contract this season.
