3. Kyle Lowry's championship experience should keep him with the 76ers

Kyle Lowry joined the Sixers in late February as a free agent and immediately found his space in the team's rotation under his former head coach Nick Nurse. Lowry had an active part in the rotation and he was among the players that were receiving a good amount of minutes during the final part of the season.

His production is not at the same level as his Toronto tenure, but that is to be expected. Lowry, 38, is preparing for the final or one of the final seasons of his NBA career.

If the Philadelphia native decides to continue to play, I don't see why the Sixers won't opt to sign him again. Lowry is the only player in the current roster to have an NBA championship in his resume, his veteran leadership might be crucial for a contending team to thrive.

During the first-round series vs. the Knicks, Lowry averaged 29.0 minutes per game and put up 7.0 points and 4.0 assists. Despite his poor shooting splits (33/34/80), the veteran remained gritty through the games and was given a significant role in a competitive environment.
