Edit: $5M buyout for 2014/15 (would save team $2M)
Another benefit of this trade is that the Raps will have Lowry's Bird rights. It'll be much easier to sign him to an extension if things work out.
You know what? They may be right.
HOWEVER: you want to talk motivation for the Raptors players?
DC first day of training camp *rolls out tweets stating this*:
"You see that gentlemen? They feel they have a guaranteed lotto pick because you guys suck! How do you feel about that?"

Toronto has a nice young core: Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, Andrea Bargnani, Jonas Valančiūnas, Terrence Ross, Ed Davis. Keep an eye on them.
Just wanted to show a mix on Lowry, I watched a lot of him this season. He is a really nice passer, can make some really eye popping plays both ends of the court.
Great aquisition...keep it going BC.
I always liked Lowry game,reminds me a little of Alvin Williams Character and heart,but with more talent...
this is how i feel. This trade all depends on what we could get in the lottery next year. I like lowry alot as a player but this is another embarrasing move by BC. We could have got him on draft night from houston and still got t-ross. this has been a bad week for raptors fans...
Good deal. We didn't have to give up too much either. Nice turnaround on the Nash failure. A lottery pick, yeah, maybe, but BC is probably working under the impression that its playoffs or bust.
Raps will have an awesome back court! With my boy Lowry and Ross!
If they can acquire a bit more without losing the little bench they have, They should Trade Calderon for Gay.
Memphis is tired of paying his money and calderon is an expiring contract and a decent backup PG for them. Just add Rudy to our roster and checkout the line-ups....pretty dangerous now NO?
Initial reports are saying that it is protected (both high and low) for 5 years, then in the 6th year the Rockets would get our First Round pick no matter where it is.
