Report: Rockets' offer for Kyle Lowry DOA because Raps won't trade
Toronto won't help facilitate a deal to send Kyle Lowry to Houston in a sign and trade because they want to keep the star point guard.

The Rockets were said to have been aggressive Tuesday morning after the free agency period began in pursuing Lowry. But one had to think it was a longshot if for no other reason than Lowry clashed with coach Kevin McHale in his last year in Houston.
Meanwhile, the Heat are the next team to try and make a run at Lowry, but with even less money to offer (through trade) than the Rockets, you have to think it's unlikely unless Lowry is just deadset on joining Miami. The Raptors reportedly met with Lowry in Philadelphia on Tuesday.
