Kyle Lowry brushes off speculations and drains 20 points as the Raptors outlast the Sixers.
The Raptors made a bold trade to acquire Kawhi Leonard from the San Antonio Spurs before the season even though the superstar forward can become an unrestricted free agent this summer. The New York Times' Marc Stein later said that he had heard the same from his own sources.
The NBA trade deadline is February 7 at 3 p.m. ET.
The Raptors were in action against the Philadelphia 76ers last night and ended up winning the game 119-107. Reassurance would be great, but at the end of the day, they don't have to call me. I don't think there's one thing I can say or do [to change that]. They once held the fourth-best record in the West and seemed to be headed to the playoffs.More news: Kate Middleton Shares Family Photo When Talking to Children About Mental Health

As far as the Raptors are concerned, they have offered All-Star guard Kyle Lowry and promising young big man Jonas Valanciunas in exchange for both Conley and Gasol, according to Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated. I think we have just been so banged up and in and out it's been tough.
"My job is, as a player, to go out here and do my job".
"It's a business. I know that's such a cliche, but if they wanted to call me, I'm sure they would. If they do something, that will be their feeling to whatever the organization thinks is best for them". If they want to call me, that'd be great.
If the Raptors are going to beat the Celtics or first-place Milwaukee Bucks in a playoff series, they must improve their roster in the trade and/or buyout markets. I would appreciate it. Conley is averaging 20.4 points and 6.4 assists per game this season and has two years left on his deal worth a total $66 million after this year.
