7. Kyle Lowry

How much does Lowry have left in the tank? The six-time All-Star is past his prime, but he was still averaging 8.2 points, 4.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.1 steals in 28.0 minutes per game over 37 contests with the Heat before getting traded to Charlotte. The 37-year-old never played with the Hornets before being bought out, and he returned home to Philadelphia to join the 76ers.

Lowry lead the Raptors to the championship in 2019. He has to decide how he wants to end his career. The veteran point guard will be a free agent this summer. Does he want to sign with a contender and chase another ring? Lowry could decide to stay in Philly and try to help his hometown franchise. Maybe his desire to make the most money in his remaining years.

Lowry has been a strong leader for years. He knows how to make plays, run an offense, get buckets, space the floor, and play defense. There has been slippage, but he played 26.0 minutes per game in the playoffs last season for the Heat as the franchise reached the NBA Finals. He can still make an on-court impact along with offering a veteran presence and leadership in the locker room.

Kyle Lowry will have his pick of teams this summer. Does he choose Gregg Popovich, Victor Wembanyama, and the San Antonio Spurs? The franchise should be recruiting him now.
