According to Raptors PR, in return, they receive point guard Goran Dragic and sophomore big man Precious Achiuwa.
Over his nine years in Toronto, Lowry became arguably the greatest player in Raptors franchise history.
He is the franchise's all-time leader in assists, steals, 3-pointers and triple-doubles, while ranking second in points, games played and minutes played. He tallied six All-Star appearances in Toronto, carrying the team to the playoffs in seven of his nine seasons.
Lowry was the floor general for five different 50-win seasons while also leading the Raptors to their first Conference Finals, Conference championship, NBA Finals and NBA championship in franchise history.
Lowry will now join forces with five-time All-Star Jimmy Butler in Miami, who just reportedly reached a four-year, $148 million maximum contract extension with the Heat. Miami looks for Lowry to be the key piece that can get them back to title contention after falling in the NBA Finals in 2020.
