    Alvin Williams, time to make your boy feel at home. Let's make sure Lowry likes it here in Siberia...

    Oh, I fully expect Fields in Toronto. I don't think it was complete BS that he's a guy they had interest in apart from the screw-NYK angle. He fits what Casey is trying to do defensively, and I believe he's better than DD at this point, development-wise. They have a ton of guys who *could possibly* play 3 in a pinch (DD, Landry, JJ, Kleiza, Ross, Acy) but none are close to starter-calibre right now.

    I still see SF as the position they ideally need to shore up first, along with backup PG and backup C. I'd expect Gray to be back, maybe Jamal, and maybe they're OK with that in terms of giving JV some rest. Maybe they keep Bayless to back up Lowry, or maybe even Jose (with a deadline trade in mind). But they should still take a swing at a SF, IMO.

    Lowry was 2nd among PGs in charges per game(0.79) 3rd among PGs in charges per 40(0.98).

    11th among PGs in steals per game(1.55) per 40(1.93).

    4th in Defensive Plays(BLK+STL+CHG) per game(2.62) per 40(3.26).

    2nd among PGs in rebounding(4.6), per 40(5.7) tied with Kidd ahead of Rondo.

    Raptors were 26th in Opponent Turnovers.

    His ability to rebound should result in more fast break opportunities for the Raptors.

    Not completed just yet.

    Sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets will receive a protected future first-round pick, but stressed that a deal to send Lowry to the Raptors was not yet completed.

    If the pick is protected, then I imagine TO is sending back a player as well. Since Houston is all over the place this offseason, it's hard to guess who they might want... Bayless?

    Houston is still after Lin, I guess... so I assume whatever is sent their way is meant to help them with that, or to shore up holes in the wake of a Lin deal...

    I was going to give a reason why it isn't so bad, but then the trade happened, so we'll see who got the better in the end

    Looks like Forbes is going to Houston.

    Lowry
    Demar
    Fields?
    Bargs
    Val

    and tons of depth.

    I like it. Best team we could have since like 5 years ago (would you guys say that is better then the Bosh/Hedo team?).

    Forbes was obv expendable after Ross and Landry. Plus, he was also expendable for being Gary Forbes.

    Sweet, sweetness ... Rewind back to the beginning of the 2011/12 season, and tell yourself we're going to get Lowry and Fields within a year ... there values were so high back then, but then a PG-PG and PG-coach controversy hurt Lowry's value ... and Carmelo hogged the ball enough to level off Fields ability to get shots or even touch the ball!

    Lowry/Jose/Uzoh (Machado? Joseph?) (can we keep Mr. Raptor please!)
    Demar/Ross/Forbes
    Fields/Kleiza (For now, until we add AK47 or Ilyasova ... assuming JJ is gone, maybe in the HOU deal)
    Bargnani/Ed/Acy
    Jonas/Amir/Magloire (Sorry Aaron, Amir will be sliding here a lot)
    The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.
