The era of Kyle Lowry with the Miami Heat appears to be reaching its conclusion, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Winderman reports that the Heat are heading toward a resolution with the veteran guard, and an announcement could be made by the trade deadline, possibly within the current week.

Kyle Lowry Says 2020-21 Year Was Toughest of His NBA Career

Recent developments have escalated the situation, as Lowry was benched for Miami’s last two games, marking a departure from his starting role earlier in the season. Last week, reports emerged that the Heat were open to trading the six-time All-Star along with another notable player.

Acquired before the 2021-22 season from the Toronto Raptors, Lowry contributed to the Heat’s success, including reaching the NBA Finals in his second year. However, with Lowry now 38 years old, expressing frustration over his demotion, and having an expiring $29.7 million deal, it appears the partnership is coming to an end. Despite a recent slump in his three-point shooting, Lowry remains a respected veteran known for his all-around contributions. Trade interest has been reported from a contending team in the Western Conference.
