Raptors fans wanted him gone immediately once Masai took over, but he kept him around for the final year of his contract. Then all of a sudden Gay gets traded, team improves tenfold and Casey doesn’t appear as awful. That being said, has it changed your mind as a fan or is the general consensus… Read more »
Incase you missed it, Kyle interviewed with the Rome yesterday. Rome discusses various topics with him. From all the trade rumours earlier this season, to reaction of the Gay trade to life being pretty good at the moment. Have a listen.
As the title states, what happens if Lowry isn’t back in a Raptors uniform next season? Do we draft his replacement? Backfill via free agency? Or acquire someone via trade(s) between now and this summer? Come share your two cents.
