    Default Emmanuel Mudiay

    Hi Guys, my point is very simple and straight:
    -Kyle Lowry is a free agent and likely demanding a MAX contract
    -Not to mention Kyle Lowry was inconsistent in the playoffs, I would say he is now an injury prone, and he's not anytime younger at age 31
    -Most importantly, even he's healthy, and young....he's 6 feet tall, you just can't guard Kyrie Irving, John Wall, Steph Curry.

    Solution:
    Raptors need a replacement for All Star Kyle Lowry, is there anyone out there who can replace Lowry? yes but no teams want to give up an all star or potential all star point guard in today's NBA.

    Except....

    Emmanuel Mudiay. Nuggets wants to trade Mudiay this season.

    Mudiay is a 6-5 point guard, 21 years old, got handle, quickness, SIZE, shooting, and still got tons of potential. Again most importantly he's AVAILABLE, teams are shopping for him.(Is there any OTHER good point guard that is on the Block?)

    To me Mudiay is the best option to replace Lowry, and we are literally rebuilding on him.

    How to get him?

    Well, to me Only DeRozan and Powell are untouchable. Yes if deal is right I'm trading JV too(less unlikely since Denver got Jokic)

    I don't think Raptors lose anything, and potentially gain A LOT in the future with Mudiay and DeRozan for your next season's back court.

    Worst shooting backourt in the league. Mudiay was really bad last year that's why Denver doesn't want him. Have you seen denver's point guards? If he was any good he would be getting 40 minutes a game. They started Jameer Nelson all season.

    Mudiay is terrible, BUT.... if you blow it up, he's the kind of gamble you'd want to take. Amassing high-upside talent at low cost is a good strategy.

    Next to DeRozan it's suicide though.

    There's a reason that Mudiay is available right now. It's because he sucks. He lost his job to Jameer Nelson this season.

    Trading for him to 'replace' Lowry isn't so much a plan as it is a super risky shot in the dark. If the plan was to nuke the team and go for a top three pick next season - which I can almost guarantee it won't be - I could be talked into Mudiay if you got him on the cheap. But considering him for the starting PG spot on a team that plans on being good seems pretty foolish given his NBA career so far.

    Eh if I were going to take a flier on a pg that cant shoot I'd rather have Elfrid Payton. Awful shooter through his career but does everything else really well. His ft% is trending up too if that means anything. But honestly I don't really want either on this team.

    I rather play Delon Wright over Elfrid Payton

    I don't have the answer to that question but I can definitively tell you that Mudiay is not the solution.

    Raptors right now is a 45-50 wins team, and this off season IF MESSED UP might heading to 35-40 win season and essentially start rebuild again. Kyle Lowry/Starting point is one of the most important decision in this off season.

    NOT TO MENTION, ALL we are doing is just to sustaining it, what about "We the North" what about be relevant again? be a contender, and thinking about Championship? I think......How you handle Kyle Lowry's situation will have major impact in next 5 years.

    I could get behind Hill but that seems unlikely.

    Holiday's injury history worries me and I'm not a big Teague fan. I think Wright/Joseph is better than anything with Collison.

    The Raptors need a dead eye shooter and Mudiay is the complete opposite of that. he only has size. the Raps should look at CJ Miles, Paul George, George Hill first.

    Delon Wright is a lot better than Mudiay, so we already have a much better option on the roster to replace Lowry.

    Damn I wish we would have found a way to trade up for Murray...

    Personally I'm not 100% against Mudiay, problem is you need a "Beal" type of SG, that can actually step out and nail 3s so EM can drive lanes. I'm not too hyped about going after him but hey maybe DEN is dumb enough to include a pick again like they did with Nurkic in which case I'm all for it.
    If I sound cocky it's because I dont know what Im talking about
