    I'm not sure why Lowry consistently flies under the radar. I would give up any asset we have not named Hayward, Favors or Kanter for him. Burks/Bell (not my first choice but realistic) works financially. A straight Millsap for Lowry also works and saves the organization about $1.5 million over the next 40 or so games. Or if the front office is interested in keeping all our pieces, they could try and send expiring deals (Bell/Watson) plus a pair of picks (2013 GS 1st, 2014 Utah 1st) to Toronto.

    Millsap and Marvin for Lowery and bargnani. It works plus id just play barge at SF as a shooter or at worst trade bait

    Trust me, Bargnarni is bad bad bad. Is it any wonder that the Raptors have been a lottery team with him in a ****ty Eastern conference?
    We do not want him. I'd really like someone to argue for Barnarni to me because from what I've of him was that he's Memo Okur with worse defense.

    Bargnarni's also got 3 years, $10 million and so not only would he screw us as a player but he would screw us in the cap.

    I wouldn't touch Bargnani's toxic deal with a 10 foot pole. Having a player like that eat up between 15-20% of your payroll is a disaster.

    The Raptors just acquired Lowry, have to wonder why they are looking to trade him after half of one season??

    Because of the way they use him he is terrible compared to Calderon, who they have been trying to trade for years.

    I think Watson, Bell, and the GS pick ought to get it done. Anyway, if the Raptors won't trade us Lowry we still offer them the GS pick to take Bell. I would like to see him 'earn' his paycheck in Canada and have to pay the extra taxes, and have to pay a Canadian accountant to prepare them.

    Three Lowry to Utah trade scenarios:

    1. Kyle Lowry and Aaron Gray for Paul Millsap and Earl Watson
    2. Kyle Lowry and Andrea Bargnani for Paul Millsap and Marvin Williams
    3. Kyle Lowry and Andrea Bargnani for Al Jefferson, Earl Watson, and the GSW pick

    1. No way in hell Watson-Bell-GS pick lands the Jazz Lowry. Unfortunately, the Raps are terrible trading partners, with a logjam in their frontcourt. The Jazz can only land Lowry by taking on a bad contract, giving up real value or in a 3-way deal.

    2. Dump a pick to punish a player who has absolutely no interaction with the team? Yikes.

    Also, Lowry is not worth paying Bargnani $22mm over the next two seasons. As a SF...? HAHAHAHAHA!

    Because he's being a bitch and wore out his welcome. Mo for salary and the worst of our pick and GSW does it.

    Crazy happens in the NBA. Memphis traded away two rotation players and a prospect for a guy who had already been traded once and couldn't make the Cav's roster---and they paid the Cav's a lottery pick to do it!

    Economics is driving the NBA as much as competition.

    He's playing hard and effectively off the bench, and is signed at a very reasonable amount through next season. Dude's arguably the Raps best player. If the Raps trade him, they'll be looking for value. If they don't get it, they wait until the offseason, see what happens with Calderon, and then decide on Lowry. Colangelo is a ****ing moron, but still.

    bros im pretty sure it would require taking back bargs and/or fields, at least, as a starting point.

    I think the Raptors can keep their pick and not send it to OKC if it's top 3. The Raptors are gearing up for a big tank job if they're thinking about trading Lowry.

    Since when has Memphis doing a salary dump been crazy? It's what they do.
