The Kyle Lowry-Miami Heat experience has been nothing but a roller coaster of emotions for the past three seasons. Fans have had their gripes and rightfully so, whether it be the lack of lateral quickness on the defensive end or his perplexing nature of going a large amount of minutes without getting a shot up. The fanbase has been trying to trade Lowry since last season, but with the bad, he's had some good.

So far into the 2023-24 NBA season, Lowry is shooting 40% from 3 on 4.5 attempts per game. He's shooting in rhythm and nearly grabbed a triple-double in Wednesday's victory over the Memphis Grizzlies, scoring 17 points, grabbing an impressive 11 rebounds, and sharing the ball with nine assists.

He's having a better start to the season than last year and has been serviceable whether fans want to admit it or not. However, at the age of 37, Miami needs to ask themselves, can he keep this up, and do they finish out the year keeping him, knowing they'll get nothing in return? These are legitimate concerns to have, but if Lowry is moved, then for whom?

There are three targets that could become available by the deadline, and it might be worth moving Lowry, should Lowry's play regress.
