Raps’ Lowry: ‘I love this winning situation’

Lowry will be a free agent this summer.

The day after the Toronto Raptors’ surprising season came to an end, the attention quickly turned to star point guard Kyle Lowry’s future with the club.

Lowry is scheduled to become a free agent this summer, but has yet to give a definitive answer about whether or not he plans to re-sign with Toronto after the most productive season of his NBA career.

The Raptors point guard told reporters Monday that it’s too early for him to begin thinking about his future. Right now, he says he’s still reviewing the Game 7 loss after his attempted game-winning shot was blocked by Brooklyn’s Paul Pierce in the closing seconds.

Lowry, who finished with 28 points, seven rebounds, and three assists in Game 7, spoke glowingly of his past year in Toronto and the relationships he has developed with his teammates.

Prior to Lowry’s breakout season, he had a reputation for being a difficult player to coach. Some questioned whether Lowry’s breakout was directly correlated with his contract status.

Lowry was said to be one of the vocal leaders of the Raptors and along with DeMar DeRozan, became one of the best backcourt combinations in the league.
