    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
    Lowry didn't like McHale, Budinger said after being traded to Minny happy as he did not get along with McHale. Dalembert happy to be out...
    Also heard recently that McHale went apesh&t on the Celtics in playing days that he should be the go to guy over Bird. I thought at hiring time Houston made a huge error going with McHale, and I seem to remember rumblings in Minny when he was there as well. The only guy I have heard was happy with McHale was Dragic, and he just signed elsewhere for a pile more money. (Maybe that's why?)

    Ross fits nicely with Lowry too since one of his strengths is playing without the ball and getting open when Kyle drives and kicks out.

    Suddenly the team got that much better at defense, too.

    Our PG's (in alphabetical order): Bayless, Calderon, Lowry

    Thus far, between the Knicks, Rockets and Mavericks: Kidd and Lin (and Dallas has neither of those)

    We've got an extra piece. Who needs it? What can we get for it?

    No doubt. This team is going to be a lot harder to play against that teams of previous years. Casey's coaching and the hard-nosed nature of new players at 1 and 5 (Lowry and JV) will ensure that. They probably still need more scoring and D on the wing, but I like the way this roster is shaping up.

    I'd be happy flipping Bayless for a 2nd round pick, or using him as part of a bigger deal to land a veteran starting SF (ie: Iggy).

    Good point. I can see Dallas having a real interest in Calderon. He is a good veteran who would work well in Dallas' system, and he is an expiring contract
