    Default OFFICIAL: Raptors‬ acquire Lowry from Rockets for Forbes & protected 1st (Post #392)

    With or w/out Nash, sources say, Raps will keep trying to trade for Kyle Lowry. Raps talked deals w/HOU at draft. Still want him either way

    I want Dragic but I'll be more than happy with Lowry. I wanted Lowry/Dragic over Nash so this makes me very happy. Thanks NY!

    Hold on, is this the same Lowry we could have got before we reached at #8 and now don't have the same value there?

    I'm always hesitant to trade with Houston because you know Morey actually uses analytics and BC is just drawing names from a hat.

    they also stated with or without nash.. so nash isnt totaly out of the picture.. i find it hard to believe that someone with as much integrity & professionalism as nash would leave us hanging this long with no answer to leverage more money from NY.. it would go against everything..would also be a huge blow to his rep in canada.. im still hopefull.. i have a feeling the NY tabloids are streching on this story.. i hope im not wrong..

    as for lowry.. i still dont like how hes handled the situation in Houston.. makes me iffy if id even take him.. but alvin williams seems to like him.. if the price isnt to high i guess it be worth a gamble, just hope alvin can mature this kid..

    I don't blame him. He did not really leave us hanging FA only started 3 days ago.

    go get your ring Steve.

    I'm not big on booing anyone, but for the people that boo'd bosh... you should also boo Nash. It would have been a big moment for Canada and he traded Legend for Lala land.

    Yep, it sucks that he's not coming to Toronto, but it should make those who thought it was a bad move anyway happier. But if he wasn't coming to the Raptors, I'm glad he chose his best option to win a championship.

    I've been trying to get my head around what Houston might want for Lowry, but their roster has changed so much in the last couple weeks. I can't find an updated depth chart for them, but by my count it would be something like this right now:

    Point Guard: Kyle Lowry, Shaun Livingston
    Shooting Guard: Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb,
    Small Forward: Chandler Parsons, Royce White, Terrence Jones
    Power Forward: Luis Scola, Patrick Patterson, Jon Leuer, Jon Brockman, Marcus Morris
    Center: Greg Smith

    They might resign Camby, and Livingston, Leuer, and Smith have a team options this year. Too bad we're short on PGs and true centers, because that's what they'd be looking for. Ed Davis might be interesting to them... he's an upgrade on every one of their big-men except Scola. Would they be interested in Davis + Bayless for Lowry + whatever projects they want to unload?

    If they are going to offer Lin a deal averaging $10M, they need to lose salary, not add it.

    But they don't really have a lot of other contracts they can attempt to move... just Martin and Scola, really. Certainly we could arrange something to take on either of these contracts, but they're already such a young team, it's hard to imagine them parting with the last two useful veterans on their team. What players do you think they want to move?

    It is no secret they want Scola gone.
    Lowry is expendable with Lin coming in.
    Patterson?
    Morris? How about a reunion in PHX with brothers?


    Lowry/Patterson/Morris is $9.75M.

    I like the idea of adding Phoenix to the trade (since that would mean Nash is still obtainable), but if Nash is gone to NY, how about the following to Toronto:

    Scola/Lowry for Amir/JJ/Forbes + 2013 pick.

    That's about a $5.5M savings in cap space for Houston. Amir/JJ/Forbes are really good players when it comes to analytics. Scola would be an upgrade over Amir. We'd still have Calderon as a trade chip or an expiring (or as a backup to Lowry).

    I want nothing to do with Scola. Really liked him a couple years ago but he's breaking down and would be a step back defensively for out team. No need for Scola when we have Dre, Amir, Ed and Acy as natural 4's and Kleiza and JJ play their best ball as undersized 4's in smaller line ups. Kevin Martin could teach Ross a thing or two about getting to the free throw line but other then that I don't see the value as I'd rather Ross and Demar get tons of minutes and play through mistakes. Only way I see the Raps improving is from their young players or through trades. I have never been a fan of free agency for them.

    interesting trade. DeRozen and Davis represent two loosing season lottery picks - its a shame it would take that to make the deal happen... but it might.

    its being reported now that nash is going to the lakers in a S&T.. i dont know what to believe now..seems kinda messed up... he even said before he couldnt bring himself to put a laker jersey on..

    i guesss the question now is which teams fans T.O, NY, PHX is going to boo him the most...

    Lowry or Dragic it is... Unless someone pulls another bunny out of their hats...
