Report: Miami Heat ‘close’ to final offer for Kyle Lowry, trying to find a first-round pick to include in the deal

The Miami Heat are really trying to acquire Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry.

Lowry, 35, is probably in his last day as a Raptors player.

The point guard is accumulating 17.4 points, 7.5 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game this season. He has started in 37 contests for the Raptors.

However, the Raptors have had a disappointing year. The team is 18-26 and the No. 11 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Raptors reportedly want the Heat to include rising star Tyler Herro in a deal for Lowry. However, the Heat are unwilling to part ways with the sophomore.

The Heat are trying to return to the NBA Finals. Adding a veteran star like Lowry would strengthen his chances to compete in the packed Eastern Conference.
