Summer is serious, and it couldn’t be more serious for the NBA. This coming offseason will see some of the biggest stars entering NBA free agency 2017. One player flying high in the radars is Kyle Lowry. Reports suggest the Philadelphia Sixers are bent on signing the point guard.

The upcoming free agency pool will be filled with some of the biggest stars in the basketball world. MVP candidates and Golden State Warriors stalwarts Kevin Durant and Steph Curry are up for grabs this summer; while Blake Griffin, Chris Paul and JJ Redick of the Clipper are free as well. However, one player seems to have a sure landing spot already come off-season.

NBA news sources claim that bottom-dwellers, the Philadelphia 76ers, have already set their eyes on the Raptor, KLow.

Kyle Lowry Stats could help Sixers enter Playoffs

Kyle Lowry has been putting up impressive numbers this season. Starting in all 56 games of the Toronto Raptors, KLow is posting 22.8 points, 6.9 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game. He is expected to help the team push for a Finals appearance after giving the Cleveland Cavaliers a run for their money at last year’s playoffs.

Should Lowry make a 10-place jump from the fourth seed Toronto to the 14th seed Philadelphia, he is expected to lead the young team as their franchise player. So far, Philly has been relying heavenly on first-year player Joel Embiid with help from three-year veteran Robert Covington and Ersan Ilyasova.

With a less than stellar point guard in the helm, Lowry could set the tone for Philadelphia’s offense which the team may badly need.

Zach Lowe of ESPN also echoed the same sentiments, revealing that Philadelphia “will absolutely make a run at [the] pending free agent.” During his podcast “The Lowe Post,” the journalist also noted that Lowry has played under former Raptor and current president of basketball operations and general manager of the Philadelphia Sixers.

Aside from Kyle and the Warriors and Clippers standouts, Gordon Hayward of Utah Jazz is also expected to enter free agency this summer -- opting out of his $16.7 million player option with the Jazz. The first time All-Star has been posting impressive, career-best numbers 22.1 points, 3.5 assists and 5.5 rebounds a game.

Paul Millsap of Atlanta Hawks, Rudy Gay of the Sacramento Kings and Dwyane Wade of the Chicago Bulls are all expected to move towards free agency as well. They’re expected to forego their player options for a possibly bigger and better contract offers.

Meanwhile, Steph Curry, Blake Griffin, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul are expected to re-sign with their respective franchises.
