    I think the Raps will be Lowry's team in short order. He is an alpha. (touch wood...there have been too many fails lately))

    We can get another pick back later

    Hmmmmm....

    Have to triple-check math, but pretty sure Raps will have do one of renounce Bayless/amnesty Jose/rescind Fields to fit Lowry.

    "Houston will receive at least one first round pick and Gary Forbes. The Rockets had tried to acquire Toronto's 2012 pick while targeting either Andre Drummond or Austin Rivers."

    Wow. Morey is either a freakin' genius whose freakin' genius is so genius it defies logic, or else Colangelo deserves a lot more credit than he gets in these quarters. How else can you explain NOT trading the 2012 #8 pick to get Lowry, and then a week later get him for arguably less when you're in an arguably worse negotiating position?

    Lowry -- a very good young starting PG who can defend, rebound, and score and is on one of the best-value non-rookie contracts in the league -- for a what, #10-15 (at best) pick in what's considered a weak 2013 draft + Gary Forbes? Great deal, or Greatest Deal Ever?

    I think Morey has lost his mind. There's like 5 guys on his team that are rookies or 2nd year players, he just lost a PG and traded another one away and he still hasn't signed Lin.

    The first thing that comes to mind is that we've got 2 seasons to convince Lowry to sign long-term (assuming he lives up to expectations, and meshes well in Casey's system).

    The 2nd thing that comes to mind is that with DeRozan and Fields, we still have zero shot-creation on the wings. Lowry helps in that regard, but I think our wing rotation still leaves much to be desired.

    Yeah this was a pretty solid all around deal for the Raps.

    I am confused as to why Houston did this? Is it to acquire more trade assets for Howard? A protected 1st rounder and Gary Forbes is going to help them get Howard? I say they got fleeced.

    well according to Adrian Wojnarowski the future 1rnd pick is "conditional with high upside" for Houston. "Guaranteed lottery pick."

    so i guess this could still come back to haunt us

    Maybe Forbes sticks around?
