Kyle Lowry Signs With Philadelphia 76ers After Buyout From Charlotte Hornets

Philly native and Villanova alum, Kyle Lowry, has made headlines by signing with the Philadelphia 76ers after being bought out by the Charlotte Hornets, as reported by ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Originally traded from the Miami Heat to the Hornets in late January, Lowry never joined the Charlotte team as plans to reroute him did not materialize.

Lowry’s signing addresses the Sixers‘ need for a backup ball handler to support Tyrese Maxey, with Patrick Beverley previously filling that role but now complemented by Lowry’s offensive prowess.

The 37-year-old guard, who hails from North Philly, won an NBA championship under Sixers coach Nick Nurse in Toronto and was previously acquired by Daryl Morey while he was with the Houston Rockets.

Known for his key contributions off the bench for the Miami Heat last season, Lowry’s strong shooting percentages and solid playmaking continue to make him a valuable asset, even at this stage of his career.

Sixers fans are eager to see how Lowry will integrate into the team and impact their performance moving forward, with his experience and skills offering additional depth to the lineup.
