Rockets To Match Offer-Sheet Signed By Kyle Lowry

Looks like the Cavaliers will have to go back to the drawing board.  Less the 24-hours after signing PG Kyle Lowry to an offer-sheet, the Houston Rockets appear to be preparing to match the offer-sheet, making Lowry a member of the Houston Rockets for the next 3-4 years.

This, from Rockets' General Manager Daryl Morey, via Twitter - 

Congratulations to Kyle Lowry on signing his new deal. We plan to match the agreement and we are excited he will be returning to the Rocketsless than a minute ago via web

This comes as no surprise since the Cavaliers actually tried to get Houston to do a sign-and-trade for Lowry before signing him to the offer sheet.  In the end, the Cavaliers did nothing but set Lowry's value, allowing Lowry to go back to Houston with a deal he is happy about.
