With the 2016-17 NBA season more than halfway over, the teams who aren’t necessarily in the championship picture are looking at ways to improve going forward. For many of the struggling teams, the NBA Draft will be their best way to upgrade their rosters, but signing free agent players could also significantly help some squads. One of the NBA free agents who is being looked at by several teams is the Toronto Raptors’ Kyle Lowry. The Raptors All-Star guard is out of action right now but expected to return for the postseason. Could a free agent like Lowry end up playing for the Lakers, Sixers, or Nuggets in the next NBA season?
In the upcoming free agency season for the NBA, Lowry will be among some of the big-name stars who are potential targets for teams. Other stars on the list of coveted free agents will include the Los Angeles Clippers’ Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, Atlanta Hawks’ Paul Millsap, Utah Jazz’s Gordon Hayward, and Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry. Kevin Durant is also part of this list, but one has to think that both he and Curry are probably safe bets to remain with the Warriors nation. That leaves other teams continuing to try to build a roster that has the star power to contend with Golden State and the current champion Cleveland Cavs.
