Hornets guard Kyle Lowry agrees to buyout, to join 76ers

Kyle Lowry, a Charlotte Hornets watch, has reached an agreement to buy out the team, making it possible for him to mark with the Philadelphia 76ers after clearing discounts, according to Mark Bartelstein of Priority Sports, who spoke with ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

After trading Patrick Beverley to the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday, Lowry gives the Pacers more backcourt level.

Lowry did not play for the Hornets this time, but he was a part of the Terry Rozier deal last month that sent him from Miami to Charlotte.

He averaged his lowest point total in points and assists since 2008–2009, but he played a significant role in Miami’s movement as they advanced to the NBA Finals next month.

Lowry has played in 130 job playoff games, ranking 11th among active players, so he has a lot of additional playoff experience.

Lowry was in the last year of his contract when he turned 38 in March.
