Lowry, 35, became a free agent today after nine seasons with the Raptors. The Philadelphia native will leave the team ranking second only to DeMar DeRozan in all-time games played by a Raptors player. He is the franchise leader in assists, steals, three-point shots made, and triple doubles.
Lowry’s No. 7 jersey will one day hang from the rafters at Scotiabank Arena, a fact that solidified after he helped the Raptors win an NBA championship in 2019.
