The Toronto Raptors believed they were “very close” to a trade agreement with the Philadelphia 76ers involving Kyle Lowry, a source with knowledge of the talks told Sam Amick of The Athletic.

The 76ers and Raptors had the final hurdle of draft compensation before reaching a deal.

Danny Green, who would have been traded by the 76ers, was set to be moved to a third team. Philadelphia pivoted to a deal with the Oklahoma City Thunder for George Hill.

The Miami Heat were reluctant to include Tyler Herro, while the Los Angeles Lakers felt similarly about Talen Horton-Tucker.
