Atlantic Notes: Lowry, Nogueira, Anthony

Zach Lowe thinks that the Sixers will absolutely make a run at pending free agent Kyle Lowry this summer. The ESPN journalist spoke on his The Lowe Post podcast with Brian Windhorst Thursday, citing several reasons why the franchise could pursue the veteran Raptors point guard.

Lowry is from Philadelphia, Lowe mentions, and has played under ex-Raptors executive Bryan Colangelo previously. On top of that, the Sixers will have an exorbitant amount of cap space and could benefit from the services of a point guard should they ultimately decide to utilize Ben Simmons in ways other than as a traditional playmaker.

Worth noting is that Windhorst believes Cory Joseph to be a suitable replacement for the 30-year-old point guard while Lowe believes that such a drop off would be too much for the Raptors.

    How I’d love it if Lowry signed to Philly… that would give the possibility of a Lowry-Monk-Josh Jackson-Simmons-Embiid lineup. But that’s just wishful thinking, given that FAs sign after the draft anyway.

    Toronto is not letting go of Lowry. New Orleans is not letting go of Jrue Holiday.

    The two veterans with connections to Philly the Sixers can overpay are Andre Igoudala and Tyreke Evans.

    Igoudala can mentor the wings the Sixers are about to draft. Fultz? Jackson? Tatum?

    Tyreke Evans was 73% of Ben Simmons when he was at Kentucky. A lead guard before its become fashionable. An appropriate backup for Ben.

    Plus, Evans’ injuries will provide opportunities for young players on the Sixers.

    I don’t think my 6ers would want him, especially with the PGs coming from the 2017 draft

    I can’t wait until Hoops Rumors reports anything that isn’t from the Lowe Post podcast.

  7. Love the speculation, its quite amusing and also highly unlikely to happen – there is no way Lowry goes from a top 5 NBA team back to a rebuild at his age, see exhibit a) Demar…all the talk was he would go back home to LA, didn’t even entertain other offers or talk with other teams. Lowry re-signs with the Raps.

    Who thinks Lowry is leaving the Raptors need to share their koolaid. He reupped before the Rapts had their success. The sixers are brutal and will continue to be as long as Colangelo is at the helm. Lowry knows this because Colangelo was in Toronto previously.

    Why would he leave a winning team with long term potential. Especially when his best friend has not only signed on long term but declared he wants to retire a Raptor.

    Cory Joseph will get dealt to make room once VanFleet proves he can take the spot. That or Powell.

    Lowry will retire a Raptor as long as Masai is in charge.
