Warriors interested in Kyle Lowry

According to ESPN'S John Sheridan who breaks down the many possibilties of the NBA Trade deadline the Warriors along with Nuggets, Bulls, 76ers, Heat and the Nets are all interested in the Memphis Grizzlies Guard.

The Nuggets' willingness to give up this June's first-round draft pick will keep them a player in the Artest stakes, but it also could make the difference in their pursuit of Memphis point guard Kyle Lowry, who is being shopped by the Memphis Grizzlies.

Memphis also is fielding offers for Mike Miller but is trying to include little-used, heavily compensated forward Brian Cardinal (two years remaining at $6.3M and $6.75M) in any deal.

The Nuggets, Bulls, 76ers, Heat, Warriors and Nets are among the teams seeking to acquire Lowry, the 24th overall pick in 2006 who became expandable when the Grizzlies acquired Javaris Crittenton from the Lakers in the Gasol trade.

"The Grizzlies want to have at least three first-round picks this summer," the source said.

As much as I'd like to add Kyle (see the irony) the Grizzlies as yet have to decide where they want to keep him or Crittenton with GM Chris Wallace stating his intentions of looking at both. On the other hand Lowry would be a great backup and even though he's not a scorer he can past almost as better as anyone on this team and is a decent Defender much better then Monta as Chris Duhon or Roger Mason J.R will tell you. Lowry could give better alternatives at this position and a great backup for Baron down the stretch. Worth taking a shot
