yeah with miami adding allen and lewis going to be hard for anyone to get out of the east
It's never certain. Injuries can make or break a team's season. ie: Bulls

ugh the east is getting strong at the wrong time. Remember the time when players stayed on their own teams instead of bandwagoning like pussies
Why is he wearing Calderon's number? Foreshadowing.....?

I'm told the #Raptors have a trade call scheduled with #NBA to finalize Lowry deal; Lowry in TO for his physical

Trade finalized. #Raptors acquire Lowry from Rockets for Forbes and protected future 1st round pick.
I just read on ESPN that the T-wolves need to move a PG in order to make room for Batum should the Blazers not match...
Anyone else interested in moving calderon for a quality player or pick and then getting JJ barea to play backup?
I just don't see how Jose is going to accept being a backup PG again after playing so well last year
I think Jose will be unhappy but he's a pro and I doubt you'll hear much complaining. I think he may say something in a round-about way and then put his head down and play hard. He's just not that kind of guy who will voice his complaints.
Ironically, Lowry IS that type of guy and he's the one who will be taking over.
ITS official.....NO MJ fiasco thank god.
Although i don't know if we came out onto of this trade. Unless we make the playoffs this year or the next couple of years, which may or may not be likely with teams like NJ bolstering their roaster, this could hurt us. I can say that Houston did maximize Lowry's career high value.
That would allow Calderon to be used in a trade for a big contract (ie: Gay or Iggy), while still ensuring the Raps have a veteran backup PG behind Lowry.
Is there a media event today to introduce Lowry to Toronto? Or is it in the next couple of days?
CJ Watson was just waived by the bulls. He could be a good pickup for the raptors as a backup PG for lowry then we could trade Jose for a sf. He'd be extremely cheap coming off waivers aswell. Just a thought
