There’s no doubt Lowry would be a valuable pickup for the Lakers. He’s a veteran star who is still producing at a high level. Beyond that, he also has championship pedigree.
So far this season, Lowry is averaging 17.4 points, 7.5 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game.
If he does end up in L.A., he’ll surely play a valuable role in trying to help the Lakers defend their NBA title.
