Miami Heat Considering Sending Kyle Lowry to Toronto in Exchange for Bruce Brown

Predicting Miami Heat’s potential this season is quite challenging. Last year, they seemed destined for failure but unexpectedly reached the NBA Finals —losing to Bruce Brown’s Nuggets in the process.

Now, facing challenges again, the Heat are considering roster moves before the Feb. 8 trade deadline.

According to Anthony Chiang, the Heat is actively exploring trades involving point guard Kyle Lowry. In the final year of his $29.7 million contract, Lowry’s expiring deal adds trade value.

Initially inked in a sign-and-trade agreement with the Raptors in 2021, Lowry’s current season stats include 8.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.1 steals, contributing to a 92-63 record when he plays.

The Heat has been linked to guards Terry Rozier and Dejounte Murray, both potentially available. Charlotte, in particular, might be interested in Lowry’s contract to create cap space.

The Heat also eyes new Raptors wing Bruce Brown, contemplating a deal that could tie back to Lowry’s successful stint in Toronto, as per Sam Amico of Hoopswire. 

Although it’s unsure if the Raptors are interested, Lowry’s return could boost a team with recent additions RJ Barrett and Immanuel Quickley.

At 37, Lowry, a six-time All-Star and a key figure in the Raptors’ 2019 championship, maintains career averages of 14.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 6.2 assists, and 1.3 steals across various teams.
