    my biggest fear with trading lowry is that Jose no longer feels the pressure & becomes the Jose we keep trying to replace! i mean he always plays better when in a platoon type situation & fighting for starters role!.. also if we trade Lowry it BETTER be for a good return because it might just come back to bite us in the end.

    Loyalty at its finest.

    I know people are going to say its a business, no such thing as loyalty, blah blah blah.

    But i think some players are exempt, particularly those ones who made a big difference to the franchise, sure fire hall of famers and those who are lifers at the same time, i.e. Pierce, Kobe, Dirk
    I'm pretty sure Pierce has a no trade clause in his contract. So he'll only be traded if he agrees to it; he's got the loyalty thing covered.

    Nope. Only Duncan, KG, Dirk and Kobe have the no-trade clause.

    "Aggressive Jose" or "Jose we keep trying to trade", still not "Jose as a future PG" IMO.

    If Rondo ended up here I would find a new team in that moment.

    Marc Stein: Sense I get is it's far likelier Celts pursue Kyle Lowry and his cap-friendly contract. But do Celts have assets to land Raps PG? We'll see

    Just my opinion but how about a 3 way trade between Boston, TO and Memphis?

    Memphis gets Green + draft picks
    Boston gets Lowry
    TO gets Gay
    Interesting idea, but I can't find a way to make this work in the trade machine without expanding it signficiantly. Raptors would need to send out about 9 million more in salary to make it work. Something like:
    Memphis gets Green + Bass + draft picks
    Boston gets Lowry + Bargnani
    Toronto gets Gay

    As much as a supporter of Lowry as I am, if you can get Boston and Memphis to agree, you do it in a heartbeat. I don't see either of them agreeing to it though. Another interesting framework is this:

    Memphis gets Calderon + Bass + picks
    Boston gets Lowry
    Toronto gets Gay

    which obviously leaves Toronto with Lucas at starting PG so that position would need to be addressed separately. I think Boston does that but not Memphis.

    Ok, thought I read that somewhere sometime; also not sure all these details are public.
