The Raptors continue to try to acquire Kyle Lowry from the Rockets, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.com (via Twitter). The Raps appear to be fading in the Steve Nash sweepstakes, but even if they're able to land Nash, the team will still have interest in trading for Lowry, says Stein.
Toronto has been linked to Lowry multiple times this offseason, and Stein notes that the Raptors were talking to Houston about acquiring the point guard during the draft. Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun speculated earlier today that the Raptors could turn their focus back to Lowry or Goran Dragic if their pursuit of Nash falls short.
It's unclear how motivated Houston is to move Lowry at this point, or what it would take to acquire him. Reports have suggested he's unhappy with the Rockets and would like to be dealt, but the team also seems to be far apart on a new deal for Dragic. It's hard to imagine the Rockets would let both point guards go — even if they made an aggressive offer for Jeremy Lin, the Knicks could, and probably would, match it.
