Kyle Lowry was in a reflective mood following the Toronto Raptors’ 135-11 win over the Denver Nuggets, though he insisted that he did not know whether he would be traded before Thursday’s deadline.

“It was kind of weird tonight not knowing what the next step would be, just with understanding there are things that could possibly be done … I mean, who knows what’s going to happen? No one knows what’s going to happen. But it was definitely, for sure, different,” said Lowry after the game.

The Heat and the Sixers are reportedly favorites to land Lowry.

A free agent after this season, Lowry is also seeking a two-year, $50 million extension from his next team.

Lowry recalled the deal that originally sent him from the Rockets to the Raptors in 2012.

“Well, I think if you go back, [then-Raptors general manager] Bryan Colangelo traded for me to become — unfortunately they missed out on Steve Nash — and he traded me to become the point guard. The trade was made for me to be given the keys. And honestly, like, you know, I wanted to take advantage of it,” said Lowry.

Nick Nurse added that Lowry was probably the best player in franchise history.

“He’s broken most, or he’s really high up there, on all the Raptors records, he’ll go down as maybe the greatest Raptor ever, I think, to date.”
