NBA trade rumors 2014 news addresses the Kyle Lowry situation again. In these updated 2014 NBA trade rumors, it looks like the Toronto Raptors may have taken him off the market. According to a report from CBS Sports on Saturday (Jan. 11), the team might instead be looking at a serious run to the Eastern Conference Playoffs.

In December the plan was for the team to head into a rebuilding process and it led to dealing Rudy Gay to the Sacramento Kings. The deal saved a lot of money for the team and was presumably going to send them to a better lottery pick. What happened instead, was that the Raptors started winning basketball games and have now gone 11-5 since trading away their best player. Now the push to trade off other veteran players might be placed on the back burner as the team has a real shot to win the Atlanta Division title.

In the 16 games since Gay was dealt, Kyle Lowry has averaged 17.6 points, 8.4 assists, and 4.7 rebounds per game. Those numbers rival the best point guards in the league, likely taking him name out of 2014 NBA trade rumors. With the deadline approaching in February, it is extremely likely that the team will hold on to him and hope for the best. Heading into the games on Jan. 11, the Toronto Raptors are now first place in the Atlantic and fourth place overall in the East. The team is also just 1 1/2 games from the No. 3 spot currently held by the Atlanta Hawks.

While it might be tough for the team to knock off the Miami Heat or Indiana Pacers in the 2014 NBA Playoffs, securing a No. 3 or No. 4 seed would guarantee not having to play them in the first round.
