    No cause weíre on Lowrys time table. Miami opting in guarantees we probably have something worked out already with them. They had no reason to do it since they had the cap.

    Remember Lowryís last free agency? He decided they **** quick. Heís not gonna pull a Kawhi.

    So if he is determined to go to Miami what is our best case scenario?

    Prince, 1st from Miami, and a couple 2nds from Dallas?

    TPE and picks. I donít think Masai will end this on a bitter note so Josh is overplaying how much leverage we actually have. I think we would be very lucky to get a first out of this tbh. I wouldnít expect much.

    If thatís the case why not let Lowry walk for free? MU has said numerous times this is business. Why should raptors help a rival? No need for Dragic or Prince on the raptors squad

    Cause we get something instead of nothing. I/We might not like what is coming back but maybe Masai does. Heís not gonna pull a Colangelo. You also kinda have it backwards theyíre doing us a favour.

    Dragic is the report. Iíd do it if we get Precious, then flip Dragic to Dallas. Maybe get Powell or something as a back up big. Better than nothing for Lowry

    Seems like a sure thing. I think Dallas will be third team for Dragic. Precious kinda sucks tho, really wish people would stop pushing him just cause heís Nigerian and Masai wanted to use a second on him once upon a time ago.
    I donít mind getting Precious. Dragic could be a flip to Dallas

    How is that a favor if we are picking up trash? Let Miami sign him outright. We should have traded him at the deadline. Unless we are getting picks, we should pass on Miami.

    Is Precious any good? Don't we have lot of guys like him already on the team?

    Now that Miami has picked up Dragic option Miami can't sign Lowry outright. So Raptors should have a little power to get something of value back from Miami if they want Lowry. Dragic is the money part of the deal now we need the Value 1st round pick or something.

    Heís a good prospect.

    Honestly bro Toronto has no leverage here. Miami could simply sign Lowry outright. Iím just saying getting some assets back is better than getting none. And we can always try to flip those assets. After we failed to trade Lowry at the dead line this was inevitable.

    We do have the option of just trying to keep Lowry as well.

    Yeah I get that, but not impressed with the return and I understand why. But if Precious is a decent prospect, then It's better than nothing. It would be nice to get a pick. But I would try and keep Lowry too. Raptors aren't going to be a bottom feeder this year and having lowry will make the playoffs fun.

    Iím with you bro. We have about $22 mill in cap space according the espn draft show. I wouldnít be against offering it all to Lowry and see if he bites. 2+1 year contract.

    Iím kinda worried about that pg spot. FVV is not a pg and Flynn isnít ready to be the starter so itís actually not a bad idea to just bring Klow back

    Yeah I am on board with bringing him back. But he has so much interest though. So going to be tough.
