Sean Woodley: I think it’s way too premature to entertain the idea of a Kyle Lowry trade right now. It’s also worth noting that it’s going to be extremely difficult for a Kyle Lowry trade to transpire because of the money he makes and because the Raptors still very clearly value flexibility. You could probably construct some trades out there and throw a bunch of contracts and some picks in and it works on paper. Then in theory, maybe it’s not the worst deal for the Raptors to get some assets in return but they’re not about tying their cap space up for multiple years on bad contracts just in the name of a couple of extra assets for Kyle Lowry.
