    Default The Kyle Lowry Trade Tree

    I decided to revisit the Kyle Lowry trade and see what happened to all the moving pieces:

    http://www.courtisinsession.com/the-...ry-trade-tree/

    Take a look!

    In summary, if the deal didn't go down:

    - Raps would have Giannis
    - Harden may still be in OKC or elsewhere
    - who knows if Raps ever get out of mediocrity
    - who knows where Lowry would be or the player he is today

    That's great. But to me that is bringing a question. Should we take a look at other potential targets this summer in free agency? Guys that are younger? Like Hayward, Holiday, etc...

    Nice article, but one thing I disagree with is that harden would likely be in okc if the lowry trade didn't happen. Harden would nearly 100% still be long gone, whether Houston or somewhere else.

    We will not go quietly in the night. We will rage against the dying light. We will study every buzzer beater with intensified might, because somethin with the NBA doesn't smell right.
