    Toronto Raptors First Round Picks by Odeon. They have done studies you know. 60% of the time they are lottery picks every time.

    i'm grinning from ear to ear. Love Lowry.
    Is it not now a great move that BC didn't trade the 8th pick in the draft? We get him for Forbes and a protected pick. What do you think?

    anytime you get a starting PG who puts up 17 points 6assists and 5 boards for 3rd String Gary and a Pick...you have unconditionally won.

    p.s. If we keep Calderon we are now extremely strong at that position. Our future is set with the bigs. We just need an answer on the wing to be a solid playoff team next year

    See I don't know if it's actually a greater move, especially if the 18th pick was included in the original trade. But even assuming it wasn't included. The wise move would've been to take that trade then, and not leave it up to chance that it might work out. Also when you give up the 8th pick you know what you're giving up, when you give up a future pick both sides are kind of playing the lottery.

    I'm ecstatic that this went down, but I don't think it was a greater move for him to hold the 8th and hope that all things would work out and we'd end up with either Nash or have Lowry as backup.

    Raptor fans are going to love Lowry. Not just for his play, but the intensity and fire he plays with. Something we haven't had on the team in a long time. I still can't believe it. Love it.

    I think Lowry was shopped heavily for a reason. Wasn't it reported he didn't work well with the coaching staff?. Not saying we will have problems, it's still a great trade

    Gary Forbes ‏@GForbz3

    I want to thank the Raptors Organization, the entire front office and coaching staff for a great opportunity. Gunna miss #RapCity

    classy guy. I hope he gets a chance to show what he can do at his natural position. I get the sense he will have a solid career as a rotation guy
