By the same amount of games Fields is failing, Lowry is suceeding the same amount.
Both players were aquired the same offseason. (yes I know Lowry is injured but that trade now looks fantastic)
Colangelo's record with free agents in Toronto is so shoddy. I can't think of one free agent he's signed that actually had a positive return.
In his rookie year, Fields was a much better talent than he's proven to be since. That year he lead guards in boards (if memory serves) and was a great cleanup guy around the rim. He also made excellent cuts and had an effective three point shot. He was a credible ROY candidate. Once Melo came on board Fields lost his role and has yet to carve out a new niche. He did he did find a small grove with Lin as well.
No doubt TOR overpaid him, for whatever reason, but he can still be a valuable asset for a team if he finds his role. Right now, he absolutely blows though.

It is funny to me how people scream sample size. How often have we seen similar posts to this:
Yeah I'm sure they'll go 0-82
Yet what are people expecting in the forums? Nobody is going to make threads for a month until we have THE PROPER AMOUNT OF ANALYSIS DATA TO FORM OPINIONS!
Fields's was a disappointment last season and got overpaid needlessly for the ulterior motives of the Raptors. It backfired and Raptors fans who are seeing him fail deserve every right to critique his poor start.
cool story bro
Fields is shiiiiiit and everyone knows this... He got overpaid and everyone knows this.... The only reason we got him and signed him to that ridiculous contract is because of Nash!!
BC plan backfired big time, the only real winners are the Knicks and Landry.
This is coming from a Raptor fan!
LEAFS, CHELSEA FC, RAPTORS, BLUE JAYS, COWBOYS
