Thursday night is draft night in the NBA, but the Toronto Raptors aren’t looking for a savior when it’s finally their turn.
Apparently the Chicago Bulls Jimmy Butler is out there stirring the pot by trying to convince Toronto Raptors free agent Kyle Lowry to come and join him in Chicago.
The Atlanta Hawks signed eight-time All-Star center Dwight Howard to a three-year $70.5 million contract last summer and this summer they are dumping him in Charlotte for Miles Plumlee and Marco Belenelli.
The Los Angeles Lakers aren’t wasting time trying to get better fast as they ship D’Angelo Russell and veteran Timofey Mozgov to Brooklyn for the Nets one-time All-Star and leading scorer Brook Lopez plus the 27th pick in this year’s draft.
This deal is all about the Philadelphia 76ers trying to build a contending team right now while the Boston Celtics stockpile more draft picks to do something.
While unrestricted free agent Kyle Lowry has been rumored to be unhappy, the All-Star point guard has been working out at the Raptors practice facility in Toronto.
Maybe it was inevitable that cracks would start to appear in what had appeared to be a very successful Cleveland Cavaliers organization since LeBron James’ return.
