Just watching the hangout and Augustine just said rumour has it that Miami will go after Lowry. Any chance he bolts to join lbj?

No surprise at all.
They have one of the worst point guard rotations in the league.

This is probably Kyle Lowry's only chance to cash in some big money after the season he just had. No chance he takes a pay cut and plays on a team where he would be the 5th or 6th option.

Not gonna happen.

He is one of the worst fits on Miami. This makes no sense. He didn't break out with the Raptors until Casey finally allowed him to control the ball like he used to in Houston. What is he going to do in Miami if Lebron is on that team?

Can't see how Miami could afford to sign Lowry. They have $70 million committed to six players next year and have a lot of holes to fill. Over $61 million to the big 3 alone.

This will happen right after the Knicks draft Wiggins.

I think they just brought it up because Miami's pg's are playing well and they'll have some cap space. There isn't any rumor that either side will be interested, just that there is potential for it.

Here's one article saying it's a potential destination. But I wouldn't look too much into it.

Miami has $70 million in 2014-15 for 6 players. The luxury tax threshold will be around $77 million. Fitting Lowry in at a decent number and adding 6-7 more players to fill out the roster is a challenge.

I don't see him leaving Toronto. I think he likes being the #1 guy on the team which is one of the reasons why he wanted to leave Houston.

I did some calculations about Carmelo joining the Heat. Assuming Haslem and Anderson decline their player options - unlikely in Haslem's case in particular - the Big 3 would have to take a 46% pay cut to fit in Carmelo at $12.5 million as well. I.e. instead of $23m each, they'd take $12.5m each to fit in Anthony. Since then, a lot of cold water has been splashed on that idea. Lowry, you would think, would want a salary of that magnitude to switch teams. But he's not Carmelo, and I don't think he gets that salary, or the Big 3 take that kind of a pay cut for him.
