    Chad Ford just said he'd be surprised to see Lowry in a Raps uniform after the deadline: "they've been shopping him too aggressively".

    Whether or not that's true, just providing some discussion.

    Woj vs. Ford in a 'source' death match.


    Why do I get the image of Woj as the devil and Ford as God in the song "Spanish Train" by Chris de Burgh?

    Ford means well but Woj just has too many tricks

    if MU is actively looking to trade lowry, that means he must know something that we don't, like lowry not re-signing. hate to see us let him walk without any return.
    He damn well better know stuff we don't, he's the freaking GM, and we're fans on a message board. But the fact that he might or might not being looking to trade Lowry doesn't mean that he knows anything definitive about Lowry, just that presumably he has a pretty good read on the odds and associated risks. It's like a poker game: he knows his hand much better than we do, but that doesn't mean he knows what's coming on the river.

    I don't doubt MU is "reluctant" to part with Lowry. Drives the asking price up.

    8 days.

    Only real option for a S+T is the Lakers. It's going to come down to re-signing him or trading for Nash+draftee. Risky, but excited to see how it plays out. Unless Ujiri learned the smokescreen tactic from BC and Lowry's on his way out as we speak.
    That is kind of what I meant about benefits of tanking despite a good/great season and playoff push.

    I trust in Masai! Remember when all these media people said it was Impossible to trade Rudy Gay? Not only did Masai trade Rudy but he made to team better now and for the future. So I take everything that these media people with a grain of salt because nobody knows what's in the mind of the WARLORD MASAI UJIRI!!!

    Woj is easily the most connected member of the NBA media. If Woj says that something is happening, then it is happening. But in this instance, he is merely talking about preference. Toronto's preference, according to Woj, is to keep Lowry and to make a run in the playoffs. But as we see regularly, preferences in sports change.

    Woj, Ford, Stein, Broussard, etc....all of them seem to agree that Lowry is on the table. The variance is simply about to what degree he can be had in a trade. Outside of Woj, each other source is saying that there is smoke on the horizon. Woj is simply saying that someone would need to come and pour gas on the fire to really get it moving.

    I like Eric Koreen's summation after retweeting Woj:

    So one of these guys has either been lied to multiple times, or is flat-out lying themselves.

    lol, rumours, lol, chad ford

    I'll take Masai's word, and integrity, over any hit seeking writer. I'm paraphrasing, but hasn't Masai gone on records as saying:
    - the team/players will decide their fate, with their play/performance
    - this team has earned giving the playoffs a run

    Unless it's a huge haul (seriously,for an expiring UFA????), Lowry is going nowhere before the end of the season, and any deadline trades will be minor, if at all.

    Adds an executive with a team that's been a suitor of Kyle Lowry, "We've heard it from (Toronto) that he won't be moved."

    All I can say is that if you told me at the beginning of the season that I'd feel this conflicted about possibly trading anyone not named JV I'd have laughed at you.

    This only reaffirms to me that MU's going to trade him. Pappy Van Winkle's the most sought out bourbon. Know why? Cause you can't get it. The warlord's going to make one of these chumps blow his load for Lowry. Calling it.

    You know what's pretty cool? I couldn't care less which way it goes (so long as Lowry doesn't get injured for the season on feb 1 / the haul is substantial )

    If he gets traded I'm looking forward to your "I told you so!"
