Position: PG
Age: 35
Height: 183 cm
Weight: 93 kg
Birth place: Philadelphia, United States of America

According to Wojnarowski, Heat would acquire Lowry in a sign-and-trade agreement once free agency opens.

The possible package to the Toronto Raptors should include Goran Dragic and Precious Achiuwa.

It’s also likely that Dragic, 35, won’t stay in Toronto for long. Wojnarowski adds that the market for the Slovenian veteran exists, and he can move to the Dallas Mavericks or New Orleans Pelicans.

It's worth mentioning that Heat already picked up Dragic's team option for next season, which means that the Slovenian guard will earn $19.4 million in the upcoming season.

Bobby Marks from ESPN predicts that after Lowry signs a new deal, he will be earning around $22-24 million per season.

Last season, 35-year-old Lowry averaged 17.2 points, 5.4 rebounds, and 7.3 assists.

Dragic was putting up 13.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 4.4 assists per game.

Meanwhile, Achiuwa’s stat line in his rookie season was 5 points and 3.4 rebounds.
