They clashed on many occasions, and Love made it very clear to the media that they didn't get along, and that acquiring Adelman was one of the main reasons he resigned with the Wolves.
that's right, i totally forgot about Love
I think Toronto should look to include Minnesota in any trade discussion with Houston.
Martin would fit like a glove in Minnesota.
Minnesota also has some interesting assets - that may or may not be available - namely #18, Ridnour, and non-guaranteed contracts.
I don't know about giving up the pick though - even if it is #8 or 9. Tough call. If Toronto could get two of #14, 16, and 18 then that would certainly make things interesting.
I don't think they should need to give up the lotto pick to land someone of Lowry's level.
On the one hand, he was a 'should-be All-Star' last year and led his team to some VERY big wins.
On the other hand, Dragic manged to step in seamlessly and lead the team to some of his own VERY big wins.
So do they have two PGs that are just So-So on a So-So team; or do they have TWO borderline All-Stars waiting to bust out?
But I'd take Lowry over Dragic, and I wouldn't give up the Pick for either of them.
The pick even at 8 is too much for a first year starter. I do like the idea of acquiring Lowry though. Got to love them Philly guards. They as tough as they come. If I do remember correctly in are golden years we were lead by a Philly guard. Who is still to this day the best Point Guard in Raptor history and he happens to be Kyle Lowry's mentor too. Leave the pick out of it and get it done BryCo.

aI'm not sold on Lowry. He doesn't seem like a long-time top-grade PG, and I would think that the Raptors would need an upgrade in the next few years if they want to become an elite team. In that case, they might as well hang on to Calderon and look for their point guard of the future. I just don't see Lowry in that role for the franchise long-term for some reason (temperament is part of it... I love competitive, but not too close to the edge).
I wonder if trading Calderon and forbes for Lowry would be good enough
Try using the ESPN trade machine. Once the trade works there then add a thread in the trade forum so we can talk about it.
We do have the Exception created from Barbosa to use as well.
And though the TPEs are rarely used, Dallas was able to acquire Lamar Odom using theirs. So it does happen.
Obviously not going to happen, but with people listing Assets that we have, I'd say the TPE is absolutely in play.
