More on Kyle Lowry Extension?

All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry understands why Kawhi Leonard would leave for the Los Angeles Clippers, but the longtime leader of the Toronto Raptors has no desire to bolt Canada. "I want to be there -- I would love to do a long extension, but we'll see what happens," Lowry said. "I'm here for USA Basketball and (to) support the guys and be around the group. I would love to be there long term, but we'll have that discussion when the time is right."
Lowry says he has not spoken to Raptors president Masai Ujiri about the team, just to check in about his injury. When the two do talk basketball, Lowry says finding a way to continue his career in Toronto will be a priority. “I want to be there,” Lowry tells SI. "I would love to do an extension, but we’ll see what happens … I would love to be there long term. We’ll have the discussion when the time is right.”

Trevelin Queen’s basketball journey is an example of relentlessness and perseverance. It’s a journey that includes attending two high schools — being ineligible to play at one — having zero scholarship offers, attending three junior colleges, living in a car, and going undrafted. Yet, Queen has always found ways to weather through obstacles even when it would have been easy to give up. “It’s all part of the process,” said the 25-year-old, who, on Friday, signed a two-year contract with the 76ers that is partially guaranteed for $300,000 next season.
However, he’s one of the headliners on the team that will participate in this week’s Salt Lake City Summer League before traveling to Las Vegas for the NBA2K23 Summer league. And he’ll try to earn a rotation spot on the Sixers’ 15-man roster this upcoming season. For motivation, he can look at what he’s overcome. “I never got discouraged,” he said of his journey. “I knew it was bigger than me. I knew I had to keep going. If I quit, I’m not just letting myself down, I’m letting my family down and everybody who invested in me. So for me, it’s always been bigger than me.”
