Nets, Knicks (and Warriors) interested in Kyle Lowry; Nets could offer Bogdanovic

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

When the Raptors acquired Greivis Vasquez in last week's Rudy Gay trade, word was that Masai Ujiri, Toronto's GM, would soon be looking to deal Kyle Lowry. ... the Knicks a likely destination, according to reports Thursday.

But Frank Isola, the Daily News beat writer for the Knicks, tweets that the Nets as well as the Warriors have interest in the speedy 27-year-old.

Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Nets may offer Bojan Bogdanovic, the 24-year-old Croatian sharpshooter.

Toronto officials have been scouting and calling European contacts on Bojan Bogdanovic, a 24-year-old shooting guard with whom the Nets own the rights, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

In fact, Turkish hoops writer Ismail Senol reports Raptor GM Masai Ujiri is watching Bogdanovic play this afternoon in Belgrade, Serbia.  Bogdanovic scored 14 points on 4-of-12 shooting as Fenerbahce lost by two to Partizan.

Lowry, who has an (expiring) $6.2 million contract, is averaging 16.6 points per game this season, shooting 41.9 percent overall and 36.1 percent from deep. He's also averaging 6.7 assists. It's not a stretch to see Lowry next to Deron Williams in a quick backcourt.
