Plenty of big names moved throughout the NBA on Thursday, but the Toronto Raptors held on to Kyle Lowry through the trade deadline.
The six-time All-Star point guard reportedly generated interest from several contending teams, but the Raptors were unable to come up with a deal regarding Lowry before the 3 p.m. deadline, ESPN reported.
The Lakers, 76ers and Heat were said to be “seriously engaged” in talks with the Raptors regarding Lowry earlier in the day, according to The Athletic.
The 35-year-old Lowry is slated to become an unrestricted free agent after this season when his one-year, $30.5 million deal expires. He is averaging 17.4 points and 7.5 assists per game through 37 appearances this season.
