According to NBA insider Marc Stein, the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Orlando Magic are interested in signing Kyle Lowry if the veteran gets bought out by the Charlotte Hornets.

The Magic are also interested in trading for Lowry since there are rumors that the Hornets don’t want to reach a buyout agreement with Lowry and prefer to trade the NBA champion so they can get assets in return.

“The 76ers, Lakers and Magic are among the teams known to possess interest in Lowry if he becomes an unrestricted free agent — with Orlando also in the mix as a team that has expressed exploratory trade interest in the former NBA championship-winning point guard as well,” Stein wrote.

The Miami Heat traded Lowry to the Hornets in the Terry Rozier deal. Lowry averaged 8.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.4 blocks with the Heat this season before getting traded while shooting 42.6% from the field, 38.5% from beyond the arc and 83.3% from the foul line.

Lowry has career averages of 14.4 points, 4.3 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.3 blocks with the Memphis Grizzlies, Houston Rockets, Toronto Raptors and Heat. The Villanova product helped the Raptors win the 2019 NBA championship over the Golden State Warriors.

Lowry was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, so the Sixers are his hometown team. Philly is in fifth place in the East, but the team lost superstar Joel Embiid to left knee surgery, so they may struggle for a while.

The Lakers are in ninth place in the West. LAL almost traded for Lowry during the 2020-21 season. LeBron James and Anthony Davis are fans of Lowry and believe the six-time All-Star can help them compete for a ring, sources told NBA Analysis Network.
