The Sixers took a run at acquiring Kyle Lowry at last month’s trade deadline, but the Raps wanted a king’s ransom.
And it appears that Philly is still in the Lowry hunt.
Sources say the Sixers still plan on pursuing him by way of a possible sign-and-trade.
Is Sixers big boss Daryl Morey prioritizing Lowry?
With George Hill and Seth Curry, the Sixers have potential matching salary for a Lowry sign-and-trade. The 76ers should also have a decent idea of Lowry’s contract demands.
The circumstances have changed from the trade deadline to the offseason.
Completing a sign-and-trade that requires three sides to agree and abides by salary-cap rules is far more complex, though.
