It appears that Kyle Lowry might stay in Toronto after all. The Raptors point guard has been the subject of trade speculation lately, with the New York Knicks expressing particular interest. The Knicks don't have many assets to give, and Toronto GM Masai Ujiri is leaning toward keeping Lowry in order to make a playoff push, according to a report from ESPN's Marc Stein.
So the Knicks have turn their attention to Andre Miller of the Denver Nuggets. Miller was recently suspended by the team after arguing with head coach Brian Shaw about playing time. The suspension was later rescinded, but Miller was dismissed from the team for two games.
New York would like to work out a deal with the Nuggets for the veteran guard, but they will have a tough time doing so as their shortfall in desirable assets looks less than appealing for Denver.
Here are few other rumors from around the league:
Hedo Turkoglu works out with the Los Angeles Clippers
After being cut by the Orlando Magic, Hedo Turkoglu is back on the market and he's looking to land on a contender. The 13-year veteran looked good in a workout with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a report from ESPN's Arash Markazi, but L.A. is not close to signing him at this time.
Andre Miller unlikely to see the floor again for the Nuggets
It appears as though Andre Miller has worn out his welcome in Denver. Even with his suspension rescinded, Miller has missed four games and he won't see playing time in Denver again, according to a report from the Denver Post's Christopher Dempsey. Several teams could use Miller's veteran presence, including the Sacramento Kings, New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors.
