Kyle Lowry is the newest member of the Toronto Raptors.
The Raptors finalized a trade for the former Houston Rockets point guard Wednesday. In return, the Rockets will receive forward Gary Forbes and a protected future first-round draft pick.
The deal was reported last week, shortly after the Raptors missed out on acquiring Phoenix Suns point guard Steve Nash who ended up going to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Twenty-six year-old Lowry averaged career bests of 14.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.6 steals during the 2011-12 season. He also contributed team highs of 6.6 assists and 32.1 minutes in 47 games, 38 of them starts. As a starter, his averages increased to 15.9 points, 5.3 rebounds, 7.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 35.5 minutes.
