07:26 AM ET 02.11 | Considering the commodity that is a good player with an expiring contract in Kyle Lowry, the Raptors may be a team looking to deal. Another interesting team as the deadline rapidly approaches: The Boston Celtics. ... Most executives contacted by FOX Sports Ohio say it seems more and more likely that [Danny Ainge] and coach Brad Stevens want to build around point guard Rajon Rondo, forward Jeff Green and second-year big man Jared Sullinger, the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Everyone else, however, appears to be available. (And even those three aren't considered untouchable.) Outside of Rondo, Green and Sullinger, forward Brandon Bass and guard Avery Bradley are drawing the most interest. The same goes for backup forward Kris Humphries, whose $12 million contract is set to expire.

I'm torn with Kyle Lowry. On one hand he's playing the way he was expected when the Raptors signed him. However I've seen too many times in the past when a player is in his last year of his current contract playing way above his head.

You're right on the money on this one. There's a great chance that he'll Dampier the team after he gets his big contract. He has been mediocre throughout his career w/ spots of greatness. He is not worth the max.
