    with people listing Assets that we have, I'd say the TPE is absolutely in play.
    Absolutely. I missed that on my list of Raptor assets. Unfortunately, it needs to be used prior to July 1st, unless the Raptors add a boatload of salary via other means before July 1st, to the point that they aren't under the cap when all their expiring contracts come off the books.

    I'm not sure what Toronto has that could interest the Rockets. They have young 4's, they have young tweeners. I doubt they have interest in DD.

    Without the pick, for Lowry to end up in Toronto more teams are needed.
    The Raptors would be better off passing on that, using the pick on a prospect wing or PG and then spending cap on a wing or PG. trading the pick for Lowry means they lose two assets: the lotto pick and a large chunk of the cap space.

    Depends on when the trade is made.

    Toronto could use their cap space prior to July 1st and then acquire Lowry with the TPE.

    Personally I think Lowry is a pipe dream anyways. Wolstat is pulling his best Vescey here with a quote given by Casey 3 months ago after a game to support the notion that BC is going to be hot to trot for Lowry. I'm sure he'll call - he wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't - but without other teams, this isn't going to happen.

    Funny you say Minnesota, as that is exactly what I was thinking earlier today when I came up with this trade.
    I have not been around much today. Didn't see your post. Pretty sure I've mentioned Toronto trying to get in on Martin to Minnesota before. Hopefully you don't think I was plagiarizing an idea!

    And that turned out awesome for Dallas.
    Utah got Jefferson with the TPE from Boozer.

    Cavs ended up getting Kyrie Irving by taking on Baron Davis with TPE.

    TPE's are hit or miss - much like any asset in a trade.

    Sorry. Lost the joke in the text but definitely got the sarcasm!

    The joke is a valid point though.

    Except Kevin Love, who HATED playing for McHale as well. Wouldn't be surprised if he was behind getting him thrown out of Minni.
    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.
    I think you're thinking of Kurt Rambis, Joey. He and Love clashed continually until he was fired midseason, and replaced by McHale as interim head coach. At the end of the year McHale was fired from both the GM job and head coaching job. I remember listening to a B.S. report in the off season, where Love talked about how much he enjoyed playing for McHale, and was sorry to see him go.

    Back to Lowry talk, what about this as a fake trade:

    That actually looks very promising and realistic, but LA would be taking in more salary than if they kept Gasol. Not too sure they'd be up for that.

    Ouch man, thats harsh :P

    That was the basic set-up, if I had more time I was going to include sending one of LA's Guards to houston (probably blake) to get a bit more financial flexibility, but if this happens we would probably need to take on one of houstons bad contracts ( Dalembert?) and then it just got too complicated.

    . So if the rumor is true then what does this tell you about his plans for Jose this summer?
    Don't kid yourself Jose is not in DCaseys Plan. He doesn't fit.

    You missed the point. Most people on here were of the opinion that Jose was relatively safe this summer until only recently. The shift away from that has coincided with the media's shift in it's belief.

    That is a horrible waste of assets in my opinion. How does that help the team at all? The Raptors might land a better player than Lowry or Scola at #8.
