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.
