The Golden State Warriors had interest in trading with the Toronto Raptors for Kyle Lowry in 2013.
During the early part of Masai Ujiri's tenure with the Raptors, he shopped Lowry to the New York Knicks and other teams. Lowry was set to be a free agent that offseason.
The Warriors were unwilling to include Festus Ezeli with a pick in their offer for Lowry.
Lowry went on to lead the Raptors to a playoff berth and has become one of their best players in franchise history.
Lowry conceivably could have given the Warriors a two-point guard backcourt with Stephen Curry. The great unknown is whether the Warriors would have been more willing to include Klay Thompson in their trade offer that offseason for Kevin Love if they had traded for and re-signed Lowry.
