The Toronto Raptors are involved in discussions with multiple teams about trading point guard Kyle Lowry and details of talks with the Brooklyn Nets have emerged. Toronto's package from Brooklyn is centered around Mirza Teletovic, backup point guard Tyshawn Taylor and overseas player Bojan Bogdanovic, reports Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.
Alternative assets that have been discussed include Jason Terry, the Nets 2020' first-round draft pick and rookie center Mason Plumlee. The Nets would look to play Lowry together with Deron Williams in their backcourt as well as using him as the primary reserve point guard. Williams has missed 11 of the Nets' 22 games, making Lowry an insurance policy if he continues missing time.
Wojnarowski also notes that the New York Knicks are revisiting trade packages to land Lowry, though it was reported Knicks' owner James Dolan vetoed a trade that would have sent the Knicks' 2018 first-round draft pick, Iman Shumpert or Tim Hardaway Jr. along with Metta World Peace and Raymond Felton to the Raptors.
