    It amazes me that you compile a list of the NBA teams that shows you just how many quality starting PG's in the league there are, and you want to move Lowry for something less than a starting PG. PG has the biggest learning curve of all the positions, the most recent rookies with Lillard and MCW don't fully get how to run a team, both have great talent, but are blessed to be in system's that help them a ton, and don't require them leading a team.

    Lowry is everything everyone on these boards want in a PG. You guys are just greedy and see younger/potential PG's, and want them. The man is in shape and finally healthy now, playing excellent ball, personally I'd rather see them extend his contract.

    You all lived through the Calderon era, now that you have a tenacious defensive PG, you want him gone. Baffling.
    Honestly, I really like everything about Lowry. So I'll just state that from the get-go.

    I'd actually love for him to get extended (he seems to be vastly underrated here) but I just don't know if its going to be worth the money he's going to demand (especially based on what he's done under Casey's helm) which means its very possible that he can/will walk and we get nothing from it. That's the biggest reason to move Lowry (that and moving Lowry is the easiest and fastest way for this team to tank).

    If they can't get an idea of if they can keep Lowry, he NEEDS to be moved (and he can easily be used to help move a bad contract which is probably more important considering that very few teams are likely to give anything really valuable for what might turn out to be a rental).

    Lowry to Minnesota for Barea and two 2014 second round picks (NO and MIN)

    Lowry to Minnesota for Shved, Muhammed, and NO 2014 2nd round pick

    Lowry to Milwaukee for Ridnour, restrictions removed from Raps 2014 2nd round pick, and LAL 2014 2nd round pick

    Lowry to Denver for Miller, Fournier, 2014 Portland 2nd round pick

    Milwaukee I can see having interest.

    Denver though? They have Lawson, Miller and while not a natural PG, Nate as well. They'd have to think Lowry's a pretty huge upgrade at backup PG...which he isn't. He's faster, but he's not as good as Miller at running your offence, and Miller gives them a much needed veteran presence. And with Miller's size, they can play him defensively at SG with Nate as his bench running mate.

    And I think Minny is also pretty set. Don't see how Lowry is a better fit behind Rubio than Barea, who gives them a nice scoring punch off the bench, and can play well beside Rubio (more of a SG than Lowry skillset-wise).

    Have there been injuries I don't know about?

    *Also, I can see both Denver and MInny having more interst in a wing than a PG. Gallinari's still out indefinitely. I think Minny likes Martin, but they could use a "get your own shot" type player...Barea might be the best (and only) option they have there.

    You don't think Lowry's expiring contract can get us a first round pick ?

    Miller hasn't played great this year that is the idea there.

    Lowry's best years were with Adelman in Houston and now he is Minny. Shved and Barea have been trade rumours for quite some time.


    No, I don't see a 1st coming for Lowry.

    Lowry is a good tank driver though.

    Lowry for awesome picks, or nothing

    Rolling with Knight at PG is no good and Po could be a solid starting 3 in the future if we don't get a top pick.

    Udoh or Ridnour would have to be added for salary.

    If UM would be happy with just 2nd round picks, then trading lowry to contender would be a piece of Cake. Lowry has a very reasonable contract and off the bench is a great player.

    dont think the Lakers can trade their first because they traded their 2015 pick. I could be wrong on that point

    ^^^ that is correct.
    How much of Amir's contract of 7 million for next year is a guaranteed money ?

    Default Trading Lowry? Why?

    Why should we trade Lowry right now? I know that he's playing really well and that he would be easy to trade, but, so is LeBron. I mean, why should we always trade our players when they are playing well? Personally I really like how the team is built right now.

    Valanciunas/Hansbrough/Hayes
    Johnson/Patterson/Novak
    Fields/Salmons/Daye
    DeRozan/Ross/Stone
    Lowry/Vasquez/Augustin

    I think the best thing we could do is sign both Lowry and Vasquez to contract extensions, so we have 2 good point guards long term. Vasquez is really good but he's nowhere near Lowry's caliber. I don't think this would start a PG debate again, and they will complement each other very well.

    P.S: Right now, Lowry is averaging near 15 points, 7 assists and 2 steals!

    Lowry is SG in a PG's body. Stats are overrated. Sure his numbers are decent, but like most are inflated because we're a terrible team. Lowry would be a back-up on most NBA teams. He isn't the floor general you want to lead your team moving into the future, let alone a reabuild. Vasquez could and should start now, but long term would likely be a better back-up should he remain a Raptor and Masai is able to identify a stronger starter. (via trade or free agency next summer)

    Lowry trade talks heating up all over Twitter. Hes going to earn a contract somewhere and create a PG controversy.

    I agree that the team is built well for 40 wins. But 40 win teams don't win titles. Even with that lineup we are nowhere near the top tier teams in the nba. MU has been given strict direction from TL to win a championship and the team as currently constructed is nowhere near that.

    As far as I'm concerned every one is up for grabs if the haul is right. As much as I like JV he is a long way from being the all star people think he can be, and while I'm happy to keep him and develop him, if the right trade comes around I'll be glad to watch him go. As much as 5's are important in this league depending on the style you play they aren't always THAT necessary. Like I said I like JV I hope he stays but when ur this bad for this long no one is safe.

    Right, but will Lowry be putting up those numbers in 2016 (and beyond) when we're finally ready to field a competitive roster? Smart money says no.

    Cash in now.
