But Lowry is insisting that the lull in his performance is based on the new offensive system that Toronto has in place for this year.
“I think the way we’re moving the ball, the ball’s not in my hands as much,” Lowry said, according to TSN’s Josh Lewenberg .
“Last couple of years, coach would give me the game for the first five, six, seven minutes of the game. I could feel out the game and get passes off and get everyone involved, and now it’s like everyone has to be involved from the jump.”
The Raptors have stressed more versatility and have relied a bit less on Lowry to carry them in games.
Lowry’s production has suffered as a result as he is starting the season averaging 11.9 points per game opposed to a 22.4 points per game average during the 2016-17 campaign
Hornets Sign Jalen McDaniels
The McDaniel signings comes off the heels of the team releasing Thomas Welsh, which created the necessary roster spot of the addition of McDaniels.
McDaniels averaged 15.9 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists last season for San Diego State.
Hornets Release Thomas Welsh
The Charlotte Hornets have released veteran big man Thomas Welsh, according to the Charlotte Observer’s Rick Bonnell.
Welsh spent his rookie season on a two-way contract with the Denver Nuggets, but was waived in July.
The Hornets picked him up shortly thereafter, but he now becomes an unrestricted free agent if he successfully clears waivers.
Pacers Sign Walt Lemon Jr.
It will be interesting to see how the Pacers utilize Lemon moving forward.
