Indiana Pacers star Paul George is reportedly not the only player, who wants out next summer from their current team. According to the Toronto Star, Kyle Lowry also wants out.

The newspaper suggests NBA teams “have been told Kyle Lowry has zero interest in re-signing with the Raptors this off-season.” Lowry is entering the final year of his deal.

The 31-year-old is due to make $12 million during the 2017-18 season. It’s the final year of a four-year, $48 million deal.

Lowry, if he chooses to leave the Raptors, will be rumored to join his hometown Philadelphia 76ers. However, with the 76ers in a youth movement and the addition of Markelle Fultz on Thursday night, 76ers management may decide to go in another direction.

He has been with the Raptors since the 2012-13 season. He previously played for the Memphis Grizzlies and the Houston Rockets.

Last season, he averaged 22.4 points with 4.8 rebounds, 7 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.3 blocks in 60 starts.
