Looks like we got him for Forbes and first rounder (they don't say what protection).
With Gary Fobes gone, can Raptors keep Calderon and Lowry?
Think we are in good shape now with this trade, just need to make a decision on Jose/Bayless. You can keep calderon, re-sign him for less next year and have a solid point guard duo, or try and trade him for a SF because he is an expiring contract and keep Bayless as the backup
Looks like a trade going down. Adrian Wojnarowski: The Rockets and Raptors are working on something "innovative," source says, with lottery protection on 1st round pick returning to Houston. Twitter
couldn't have worked out better
FUCK YES! Oh man what a relief, I thought we were going to end up with nothing.
Keep Calderon and renounce Bayless. Amnestying Calderon would make no sense right now, especially now that Lowry is here and we need a guy to do the feeding.
it looks like the raptors might make a run as brandon rush to fill in for gary forbes....rush is a restricted free agent so i hope they dont otherwise we might over spend to get him
No need to amnesty Calderon. But he's still a trade chip.
DeRozan/Fields wing combo doesn't excite me much. Maybe Calderon can be used to upgrade in that regard.
yeah there's going to be lots of trade options and i'm sure BC has a few plans
But if we trade for Lowry, how will we sit around and piss and moan about them not trading down for him on draft day, in a magical deal that has never been confirmed to have existed????!!!!?!!??
This is great. I'm so excited to have a tough, defensive minded point guard on the team for, what, the first time ever? If, God forbid, JJ matures slightly over the off-season, and whoever the back-up pg is does a good job, I don't know why we couldn't make a run at the 7th or 8th playoff spot in the East. God bless the crappy East!
Any chance Raps can work a deal for Iggy now? Upgrade the wing with a solid defender and a guy who can pass the ball.
This is a better fit than Steve Nash. Colour me pleased (even if we had to get to plan B or C before making a good move). Here's hoping we can package Jose and DeRo to recoup the pick we just lost.
