In a sit-down interview with ESPN's Rachel Nichols, Kyle Lowry did little to dispel the notion that he has some level of animosity toward Raptors president Masai Ujiri after ultimately dealing friend and teammate DeMar DeRozan to the San Antonio Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.

Ujiri had a chance to weigh in on Lowry's recent comments prior to the Raptors' 113-102 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Lowry: Just another regular-season game

Lowry: Just another regular-season game TORONTO - Kyle Lowry refuses to entertain suggestions that playing two-time defending champions Golden State means more than any other game. The Toronto Raptors' all-star guard, who can sound grumpy on a good day, was particularly ornery when asked about the game after Thursday morning's shootaround. "Just another regular-season game. Next question," Lowry said, his black hoodie pulled up over his head. "Why?" a reporter asked, thus prompting a playful exchange. "What is it though? What are we in right now?" Lowry asked. "Regular season." "There you go," said Lowry. Playing the best in the league doesn't happen every day though, the reporter replied.

Lowry : “I’m not sure. He ’ s not here, so I haven’t spoken to him.” Reporter: On the phone, I mean. DeRozan told reporters the day before that his relationship with Raptors president Masai Ujiri is “done.” While the Raptors shared a photo of him, Leonard has not spoken publicly since being traded

"Kyle Lowry is always mad at me, every year," Ujiri jokingly told panelists Nichols, Tracy McGrady, and Zach Lowe on "The Jump" Wednesday.

"I understand what happened with DeMar," he continued. "There are two things in this business that are tough ... When a player leaves - and Kawhi left. And then, when a player gets traded. Those two things are tough. And in our position, we have to do them, and we have to deal with them. And in a trade, it's tough to communicate with players in that manner. We have to communicate with agents and can't go and say, 'Oh, you're going to get traded.'"

At this stage in their relationship, Ujiri is well aware of Lowry's occasionally prickly personality, but insists the two have never had an issue with each other.

"It's been like that with Kyle since I came here," said Ujiri. "We've never - we don't have a confrontation. We don't - I've never done anything wrong to him. It's just this kind of decision-making that we have to go through. And I know how Kyle is, so honestly, I love him to death."

Game Centre: Kyle Lowry held pointless and Raptors stumble late in loss to Bucks.
Kyle Lowry was held without a single point on Sunday night and it should come as no surprise that the Toronto Raptors lost the game. The struggling all-star point guard missed the only five shots he took as the Milwaukee Bucks made more clutch shots down the stretch to beat the Raptors 104-99 at the Scotiabank Arena. Two Malcolm Brogdon three-pointers in the final minute — sandwiched around another Lowry miss — led the Bucks to the win before a disappointed Scotiabank Arena crowd. A Fred VanVleet bucket got Toronto with one point with about 25 seconds left but Giannis Antetokounmpo took advantage of space on the baseline for a dunk with 12.6 seconds left.
