Kyle Lowry is still doing his pregame handshake with DeMar DeRozan — even though DeRozan is no longer with the Raptors.

TRADE RUMORS: Could Damian Lillard team up with LeBron?
The longtime NBA friends and teammates were separated in the offseason when Toronto traded DeRozan to the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard.
Ahead of the Raptors' 116-104 win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday night, Lowry appeared to "air bump" an absent DeRozan.
The touching moment broke the hearts of NBA fans everywhere:

That's true love if I've ever seen it— Mike Belyea (@Bels19) October 18, 2018
We haven't talked enough about how the DeMar DeRozan trade affected Kyle Lowry. He avoided calls and texts from Masai Ujiri all offseason, he didn't talk to Kawhi Leonard until Media Day and now there's this. Lowry is bummed that his best friend is gone. https://t.co/AU9YsfgMkf— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) October 18, 2018
