Denver Nuggets Receive: Kyle Lowry

Toronto Raptors Receive: Gary Harris, Will Barton, 2021 1st Round Pick

Kyle Lowry going to the Denver Nuggets would be somewhat of a surprise. It would be strange to see Lowry in a different uniform over the final years of his career. Denver has a few players that they could send to the Toronto Raptors in a deal that would help them for longer.

Gary Harris and Will Barton can be viewed as pieces in the backcourt to help Toronto. They would serve well as complementary pieces alongside VanVleet. A first-round pick would be a nice sweetener in this deal for Toronto.

Let’s take a closer look and see how both sides would benefit from this trade.
