Kyle Lowry isn't ready to talk about DeMar DeRozan-Kawhi Leonard trade

Kyle Lowry was asked about the blockbuster trade the Toronto Raptors recently made in sending DeMar DeRozan to the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard, but the four-time All-Star didn't have many answers.

According to Michael Grange of Sportsnet, Lowry's response to questions at Friday's Team USA minicamp about the trade involving his best friend was "I'm here to talk about USA Basketball." The most he said about the deal was when he was asked about his relationship with Leonard, who decided not to attend Team USA minicamp, though even that answer was short-lived.

Josh Lewenberg of TSN Sports tweeted that Lowry said he will "be ready to go to work" and "ready to make my comments" when the time comes.

Friday was clearly not that time.
