Raptors working on trade of Lowry to New York

Latest trade scuttle: Raptors trying to construct deal with Knicks that would send Kyle Lowry to New York
There is no way we keep Shump in this deal right? -_-
That would be nice dependent on how much we give up. Prefer not to have Shump or Tim Jr involved but that would never happen.
But this rumor will eventually run out of gas like all the others.
likely its a THJ, Beno, Shumps trade, sounds like a trade the knicks would make
Make them wait until January, they can take the Smith brothers.
No Shumpert or Hardaway.
**** yeah. As long as Shump isn't in the deal I'm happy.
@HowardBeck: Re Kyle Lowry: I'm told Raptors are shopping him everywhere, but NY is "most promising destination" at this point. TOR wants a 1st-rd pick.
Lol If that's what they want why did they even call NY?
You know what 1st round pick would be so useful now? The one Dolan threw to Toronto for Bargnani.
Don't trade TH jr
I couldn't careless about Shumpert at this point, he's just not that good, offensively AND defensively.
as much as I would love to upgrade the pg spot, how much of an upgrade is kyle lowry? I'm really not that familiar with him.
Howard Beck @HowardBeck 1m
Raymond Felton would likely be sent to TOR in any deal for Lowry, tho Knicks would need to include more salary (MWP?) to make it work.
oh god... I wouldn't trade a 1st, even if its 2018, or THJR or Shump for Lowry so I can't see this being a deal I like.
Felton....Beno...JR are the only ones I'd trade for him.
I don't think Lowry is actually much of an upgrade over Felton at all... just another low % shooter with questionable attitude whose defense has regressed to below par.
At least Felton really wants to be here and never causes any turmoil.
We let Lin go to trade a bunch of assets for PG's that are worse and older than he is....smdh
Kyle Lowry $6,210,000
Raymond Felton $4,180,000
We'd need about a 1.5 Million dollar contract to make it work I believe.
So it would have to be Felton + Metta or Shumpert or Tim JR+Chris Smith
Maybe the raptors could extend us a gimme for raping us on the Barg trade
Don't worry about what people think, they don't do it very often
It's still unbelievable we gave up a 1st rd pick to take on a player the raptors didn't want. If we add Tim Jr. or IMAN for an expiring player the raptors don't want, we should put the raptors GM number on our blocked list. The raptors don't even need a SG..
