Kyle Lowry spurns Rockets to re-sign with Toronto Raptors

Andrew Richardson-USA TODAY Spor

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Kyle Lowry has turned down the Rockets' overtures to return to Toronto.

If you're keeping score at home, Daryl Morey is now 0/1 in the summer of 2014. Kyle Lowry, who Daryl Morey visited on the first night of free agency, has reportedly accepted an offer from the Raptors to return to Toronto after two very successful seasons with the team, turning down the Rockets in the process.

The Rockets were always a longshot to land Lowry as he was not their first priority and the Raptors were waiting with a lucrative offer, but it still hurts to see. With Jeremy Lin seeming to be on his way out more and more each day, the Rockets could use another point guard, and Lowry would look pretty unbelievable next to James Harden.

Regardless, best of luck to Lowry, who really seems to have found a home in Toronto. Who would have guessed that the chubby point guard we got back for Rafer Alston in 2009 would be signing a $48 million deal five years later? I certainly wouldn't have.
