    only do this trade if we get to our pick and Lillard and Barnes is off the board. If there both gone pull the trigger and nab the 12 or 16 pick from the rockets along with lowry

    Colangelo never gets a pick back, throughout all the draft histories with Colangelo in Toronto everyone else always end up getting the Raptors draft picks and then run away like bandits without giving anything back (oh yeah we did get "our" pick back from Miami but that's only because we got raped by them with the Chris Bosh fiasco)

    No pick is coming back with Lowry.

    you never know. Maybe Ed Stafanski's like "No! don't trade unless we get a pick with Lowry"

    I would like to see the 12 pick come to the raptors as well. Or get a later draft choice and pick up Royce White
    You mean James Johnson 2.0? We could do better then that.

    I dont understand all the BC haters. I think he has only done good things for this franchise and is a top 10 GM in the league. He's made trades that no one thought was possible as his hands were handcuffed, his drafting has been excellent imo. I'm extremely surprised that we have no signed him to an extension. My only criticism of him is so many Europeans but he may have actually found a star among them in Jonas for once.Not to mention in every trade there is a small amount of luck that is needed that he has not gotten when he has made moves for O'neal or Turk. BC is the man and will finally show that this offseason.

    ive read that too somewere.. league execs think the only reason Lowry isnt a rap by now is that BC either hates him or BC is positive Nash will sign in T.O.

    i have to say im a little relieved too.. although lowry may be a decent up comming player, id always have a huge red flag on anyone who bashes there coaches in the media & basicly demands the coach be fired or he wants to be traded.. he seems to me to be a Douche.

    Only Rudy Gay can justify trading away the #8 pick! Lowry's good, but I don't see his potential matching up to Rudy Gay's.

    Nash & Gay all the way lol

    Absolutely agreed. If I were being really greedy in my prayers to the basketball gods...

    Trade for Gay.
    S&T for Nash.
    Trade 2013 1st round pick (top-6 protected) for as early a pick as possible to draft Lillard (ideal, but unlikely) or Marshall (more likely).
    TPE trade for Chandler.

    C: Valanciunas, Gray
    PF: Bargnani, Amir
    SF: Gay, Kleiza
    SG: DeRozan, Chandler
    PG: Nash, Lillard/Marshall

    Might as well dream big!

    Unless some think he is Rose 2.0. All a matter of perspective I suppose.

    No, Lilliard isn't like Bayless, Lilliard can actually run a team. Rivers is Bayless 2.0,

    Yup, this is my dream scenario too. This team is instantly competing for home court advantage.

    That 11-man roster (including Forbes) would have an approx. total team salary of $64M, plus whatever Gray re-signs for. They'd also have to add 2 minimium wage players (Magloire & Uzoh perhaps) to reach the 13 player minimum. That would likely take them to about $68M for total payroll next season, which is roughly $10M over the cap and $2M under the luxury tax level (all based on this year's cap/tax numbers).
