ESPN.com is reporting that The Toronto Raptors are on the verge of agreeing to a deal that would bring Houston Rockets point guard Kyle Lowry to Hogtown. The details of the deal are still being worked out, but reports say the Rockets would receive forward Gary Forbes and a future first-round draft pick for 26-year-old Lowry. Last season Lowry averaged 14.4 points-per games and 6.6 assists-per-game. With two years and less than $12 mil remaining on his contract, he’s seen as a positive addition to the Raptors roster.

From ESPN.com:

The Raptors have been talking with the Rockets about prospective Lowry deals for weeks, sources said, and seriously discussed the prospect of swapping the versatile guard for Toronto’s No. 8 pick in last month’s draft.

ESPN.com reported Sunday that the Raptors were still interested in trading for Lowry even if they had convinced Canadian icon Steve Nash to accept their three-year, $36 million offer in free agency. When Nash opted to urge the Phoenix Suns to instead get him to the Los Angeles Lakers via a sign-and-trade deal, sources say Toronto ramped up its pursuit of Lowry.

Lowry was reportedly looking to be traded out of Houston after a falling out with head coach Kevin McHale. Does his arrival in TO mean that long time Raptors point guard Jose Calderon’s time in Toronto may be coming to an end?
