Cavaliers Sign Point Guard Kyle Lowry To Offer Sheet

New, 1 comment

Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Cleveland Cavaliers have made their first personnel move of the summer, signing Kyle Lowry, a restricted free-agent point guard, to an offer sheet. As his current team, the Houston Rockets will have seven days to match the offer, which Windhorst says "is for three years with a fourth-year team option that could make the contract worth up to $24 million."

Lowry, 24, is a four-year veteran. He averaged 9.1 points, along with career-bests of 3.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists, last year.

Windhorst speculates that the Cavs like Lowry for his defensive quickness, and that the offer indicates the Cavs have decided not to make Delonte West part of their future plans.
