The Raptors can re-sign Lowry with his Bird rights, but they won't have much if any cap room to make sizable additions.
The Cleveland Cavaliers were "turnt up" in Game 4 against the Toronto Raptors on Sunday.
It was Toronto's first playoff sweep since the opening round against Washington in 2015.
It seems like forever ago that the biggest question in the National Basketball Association was whether the Cleveland Cavaliers could flip a switch come playoff time and become the team that could once again challenge Golden State for the crown.
The Cavaliers are looking at four wins until their third straight Finals, and for LeBron it would be his seventh in a row which is absolutely mind blowing. From there, the Cavs were able to close the game out as Toronto could not close the gap the rest of the way.
"I will be opting out and that's as far as I've gotten", Lowry said as the Raptors wrapped up the season that ended with Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. "He's battle-tested and he came up big". After a basket by Joseph, Irving added two more free throws and a layup, scoring all of Cleveland's points in an 11-2 run that gave the Cavs a 103-95 edge with 4:00 remaining. Korver, who did not play in the first quarter, was 6 of 8 in the second quarter, including his four 3-pointers.

Interpol thinks that more than 200,000 people in more than 150 countries were affected - and things could get worse. Some of those are people that you wouldn't necessarily expect us, or large organisations, to work with.
This year's post-season run was Tucker's first in the National Basketball Association.
Boston led by 11 points at one point in the second quarter, but it was 48-48 at the break.
The Wizards evened the best-of-seven series 2-2 after the Celtics won the first two games in Boston. After suffering a sprained left ankle in Game 2 against the Cavaliers, he was unable to play in the final two games of the series.
His current streak of NBA Finals appearances is already a total unmatched since the Boston Celtics dynasty of the 1960s.
"Any time you go against someone who wants to compete, you respect that", James said". "We understand that. We've been in this position before, but we understand there's still a lot to learn, still a lot of things we can correct and get better at". Fifty wins, Kyle and DeMar, playoff spots, and LeBron makes it all feel small. James started the game trailing Jordan by 186 points.
LeBron James puts some emphasis on these two points, part of his 35-point afternoon in Toronto as the Cavaliers completed a series sweep of the Raptors.
Thousands of Brazilians Rally Against President Temer
Some Temer allies tried to shore up confidence, but others said his Brazilian Democratic Movement Party, or PMDB, was in tatters. On Thursday, the Supreme Court launched an investigation into Temer and he faced four separate impeachment requests in Congress.
The Cavs have rolled over IN and Toronto and now await the victor of the Celtics/Wizards series but until then they will get another long break, which only makes them more unsafe. DeMar DeRozan had 22 points and eight assists despite taking an Iman Shumpert knee to the groin in the second quarter. Still, Kyrie finished the game with nine assists and just one turnover.
During his tenor on ESPN's "First Take", Bayless was all about ripping King James, even when LeBron finally managed to bring Cleveland a championship. The Raptors hit 10-of-29 for 34.5 percent, but the Cavs out scored the Raptors by 18 points from behind the arc.
The Cavaliers opened a 14-point lead on Korver's 3-pointer late in the first half. He's just been on another level, and he's just raised his game.
There are the decisions about the restricted free agents - Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, P.J. Tucker and Patrick Patterson.
Does he think they could have hung with the Cavs if they had their full roster for more than a handful of games at the end of the year? I just like the team assist stat because generally getting assists means the team is moving the ball and creating quality shots.
Asked to choose between the Celtics and Wizards, James claimed not to have a preferred opponent.
