It has been widely assumed for months that the Raptors would try to package Calderon’s expiring deal with Barngani’s in hopes of landing a top-flight player in return. But the Raps have actually functioned better so far this season when Lowry — who brings an undeniable “swagger,” as coach Dwane Casey likes to say, but is also undeniably up and down with his moods — has been out of the lineup nursing a variety of injuries. One source close to the situation said Friday that Bargnani remains “a lock to be moved.” That naturally depends on finding a taker for the underachieving Italian forward, but Lowry’s contract shouldn’t be too hard to attach to a trade, valued at $5.8 million this season and with only $1 million guaranteed of the $6.2 million he’s owed next season. via Marc Stein, ESPN
