Kyle Lowry is no stranger to playing basketball on the biggest stages in the world, so why not try a Adam Sandler movie?
In the upcoming Netflix movie Study, to be released on June 8, Lowry is one of several basketball players appearing alongside Sandler, who plays an NBA agent.
Study documents the real life of Utah Jazz player Juancho Hernangómez, who plays Bo Cruz, a top NBA recruit, while Anthony Edwards of the Minnesota Timberwolves is his main opponent named Kermit Wilts.
The trailer also features Boban Marjanović, Trae Young, Jordan Clarkson, Khris Middleton, Aaron Gordon, Seth Curry, Tobias Harris, Tyrese Maxey and Matisse Thybulle.
“That’s him [from] “Kiss”, Sandler said Kayla Gray of TSN about how they persuaded Lowry to do the role, with much of the film being shot at the 76ers’ rehearsal facilities. “It was summer at Philly… and LeBron is helping too.”
Lowry had a trial season with the Miami Heat, his first in South Florida after nine seasons with the Toronto Raptors. Lowry had a problem with his hind thighs throughout the playoffs, as well as with a personal leave of absence during the regular season that led him to miss three games with the Raptors.
The Lowry’s Heat reached the 7th game of the Eastern Conference finals, but lost 100-96 to the Boston Celtics, losing almost their second chance in an appearance in the NBA Finals. In a press conference at the end of the season, Lowry described it as a “waste of time”, adding that “he only plays to win championships”.
The Hustle trailer is available below.
