The image above is from a 2013-14 Raptors game ticket (Raptors season ticket packages are beginning to arrive). Note the No. 7 on Kyle Lowry. And here’s a link to the Raptors’ roster on the team’s official website. Again, note the number listed for Lowry.
Lowry wore No. 7 in Houston, but switched to No. 3 in Toronto due to the presence of another enigmatic seven. With Andrea Bargnani now out of the picture, it looks like Lowry will reclaim his former number.
@JosephCasciaro Hopefully he can restore the No. 7 glory Keon Clark hath brought

Erasing the frustrating memory of Bargnani is good for all involved, unless of course you already spent over $100 on a No. 3 Lowry jersey.
Shout-out to theScore’s Alex Campbell, who noticed the change on his tickets.
