Is Kyle Lowry on Celtics' radar?
According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Celtics will look to go after Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry in light of Rondo's season-ending ACL tear.
Ken Berger of CBS Sports reported earlier this week that Lowry "hasn't made many friends in his new surroundings." This report has led to speculations that Toronto is looking to move the young point guard. If Celtics were to somehow strike a deal for Lowry it would most likely not include Paul Pierce or Kevin Garnett.
However, Celtics will have to seriously think about their future in Jared Sullinger and Avery Bradley. Both players are definitely their best trading chip other than Pierce and Garnett.
Courtney Lee and Leandro Barbosa are both expendable guards for the Celtics but Danny Ainge's phone isn't necessarily ringing off the hook for their services.
Lowry is averaging 13.5 points, 5.8 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game for Toronto this season.
