76ers Rumors: Philadelphia Will Not Pursue Kyle Lowry In Free Agency Following Deal With Celtics

The Philadelphia 76ers had planned to go hard after All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry in free agency this offseason, but that is no longer the case, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

After acquiring the No. 1 pick from the Boston Celtics, the Sixers plan to take Markelle Fultz, erasing their need at point guard.

Philly has $40.2 million in cap space this offseason - the second most in the entire league - and they do plan to be active in free agency. However, Lowry and other starting-caliber point guards have been taken off their board.

Other notable free agent targets are expected to be J.J. Redick and Andre Iguodala.

Lowry averaged 22.4 points, 7.0 assists and 4.8 rebounds per game for the Toronto Raptors this past season.
