LeBron turns 36 in December, and the Lakers would love nothing better than to make life easier on LeBron James as well as Anthony Davis next season.
There has been a ton of speculation when it comes to the Los Angeles Lakers offseason and the possibility of adding a third star alongside Anthony Davis and LeBron James. The latest name being tossed around is Raptors All-Star guard Kyle Lowry.
In a recent article breaking down possible moves for the Lakers, Bleacher Report’s Dan Favale proposed that Los Angeles make a run at the veteran point guard:
“The Kyle Lowry Hail Mary”
Los Angeles Lakers Receive: Kyle Lowry
Toronto Raptors Receive: Avery Bradley (player option), Alex Caruso, Danny Green, No. 28 (as an actual salary), 2022 first-round pick swap
“Lowry is an ideal fit beside LeBron and Anthony Davis, someone who can stroke spot-up threes and set screens but also pilot the offense on his own,” Favale wrote. “That he comes off the books in 2021 is similarly convenient.”
Last season, Lowry signed a one-year extension with the Raptors worth $30 million. He might be 34-years-old, but clearly has plenty left in the tank for another title run.
Last season, Lowry averaged 19.4 points, 5 rebounds and 7.5 assists.
