Kyle Lowry is set to wear his third jersey this season. After the trade that brought him from the Miami Heat to the Charlotte Hornets a few weeks ago (in exchange for Terry Rozier), the veteran reached a buyout agreement. Lowry never took the court with the Hornets, awaiting a trade and, once it failed to materialize, release.
Now, as reported by Shams Charania, Kyle Lowry will sign as a free agent with the Philadelphia 76ers, going to backup Tyrese Maxey. The 37-year-old veteran has a close relationship with Philadelphia, his hometown: he played high school ball at Cardinal Dougherty, also in Philadelphia, and attended Villanova, which is located nearby. In addition, Lowry will reunite with coach Nick Nurse, with whom he won the title in Toronto in 2019.
This season Lowry is maintaining 8.2 points and 4.0 assists average.
