    I'm loving what I see from Lowry so far. He's exactly what he need both on offense and defense from the point guard position. One thing that I really like about him though is that he really seems to have taken a leadership role - both on the floor and in huddles - really talking to guys and being assertive. This is something we haven't seen out of a raptor in a while and I like it.

    Default Has Gay given Lowry reason to re-sign?

    Gay's acquisition not only enhances the SF position but could also mean that Lowry signs an extension. While playing along side his best friend is one reason, the fact that Raptors have inched closer to contention now could be enough reason for him to re-sign. While I have preferred Jose's play making skills to Lowry's, something good could be developing here. A sudden increase in pace without sacrificing defence can possibly happen as Lowry is a fast paced guard. If only he learns to resist a tendency to shoot as much and be a little more of a distributor, with another solid addition or two, Raps. could be a threat.

    Your thoughts.

    I agree with what you are saying and the possibility of rudy staying in town is also important. Also, I dont really think lowry should do less, him finding his shot is extremely important especially when playing with two wings that are that adept at shooting. Lowry will have his shooting nights and it is up to him to decide whether the shot or distribution will help the team win. It is about finding a balance and playing to what the team needs, rather than forcing his game one way or another. This was a major problem we were having while Jose and kyle were playing here.

    We need kyle to be kyle.

    I don't see Lowry leaving this team and will probably get a 2-3 year extension at the start of next season.

    There aren't many teams in the NBA that are willing to give KL the starting PG job, and BC just gave him the undisputed No.1 spot after the trade for Gay.

    Bottom line, He's here to stay. And no matter how good Gay plays in his final guaranteed year, he's not going to reject his player option that will net him over 19 million.

    Keep in mind it could go vice versa as well...Lowry being here could convince Rudy to stay as well.

    You know what I am hoping?

    Raptor fans don't get all paranoid and needy.

    The reality is the new CBA actually discourages signing extensions. Guys can get more money as an UFA. Best thing the Raptors, its media, and its fans can do is make the assumption they are going to resign. Why wouldn't they? They are wanted, it is a young team, they can get more money in Toronto than anywhere else, and Toronto has a great fan base in a great city.

    They are going to sign extensions.... book it.

    I think it helps, in part because he's friends with Gay, in part because it makes the team better, but also in part because the organization has shown him loyalty with this trade. There's a quote that I remember someone (maybe a college coach?) saying about Lowry when we acquired him: he's loyal to those who are loyal to him. In choosing to trade away a very good, popular, and respected PG to hand Lowry the reigns shows just how highly the organization thinks of him.

    Good point. It makes re-signing Lowry that much more important.

    It is indeed. As much as I don't want to get carried away, it's funny how one acquisition has made a seemingly hopeless teams future look good.

    Umm....really guys? Has Lowry won you over just because Jose was traded? He still has to convince me he's the PG for this team's future. He's still been really inconsistent and needs to prove he can play the way the team needs him to every night. And you know, the team needs to prove it can win with them, to some degree.

    it's all winning and How much other teams will pay him. I think this summer we are allowed to talk extension with him but not sure. hopefully we can grab him at less than what we payed Jose.

    We need an everything Arron Grey to. I watched the Clipper broadcast of the last game. They were impressed with the game he had & his numbers against Golden State.

    Default Is Kyle Lowry the answer at the PG position??

    Another mediocre performance tonight by Lowry. He's been average since the Calderon trade and really he's been average the whole year except for the first 5 games of the season. No playmaking skills, overrated defensively, likes to play hero ball, makes a lot of poor/dumb decisions on offense and on defense.

    Colangelo took a big gamble trading a potential lottery pick for an unproven PG and looks like it's going to bite him in the ass.

    If you look at Lowry's career, he's been a career backup. He was a backup in Memphis. Lost his starting job to Dragic in Houston. Lost his starting job to Jose earlier in the season. Now that he's getting the chance to prove that he's a starting caliber PG in this league he hasn't impressed. To me he's looking like your protoypical backup PG. A guy that is more suited as a backup PG but will show flashes from time to time.
