    Everything Kyle Lowry

    Came across a little gem on ESPN, couldn't find a real Kyle Lowry thread, so here it is.

    ESPN ranks Kyle Lowry as the 13th best free agent this year, although they do count a bunch of guys who may not opt out (Melo, Lebron, Bosh, etc.).

    Here's the article (insider) :

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/story...ee-agents-2014

    They peg Lowry's Suggested AAV (average annual value) as $8.5 million for 3 years, which would make me thrilled.

    Here's the write up:

    Along with Stephenson, arguably no player has increased his market value this season as much as Lowry did, playing at what should have been considered an All-Star level and being the main driving force behind Toronto's ascension into the playoff picture (although both of those facts should be tempered by the reality that he's done it in the Eastern Conference). His caustic personality hasn't gone away, and he is 27, so he doesn't get the full bump to an eight-figure AAV.
    Lowry's shooting troubles of late may actually help that very team friendly deal come to fruition.

    Christian was never high on JV, he said he liked him as a teammate but bashed him whenever he had a bad game. That's what I remember of him. It was him, TRex "TheGreatOne", special1 and one other DD club member I can't remember now and yeah, he was your guy, those were the days... Biggest stat backed JV fans were danh, Matt52 (RIP), puffer(?), so yeah, two of three are still here.

    Traded to the spurs and grizzles equivalent of RR.

    I'm not sure how good Dejounte Murray is and if he's healthy after sitting out all of last season, but would the Spurs be interested in Lowry for Murray and whatever needed to make it work? The core of that teams isn't young and if they want to make a run in the West they are better off with a vet like Lowry than will Murray running the show while still learning the ropes.
    Murray is pretty much untouchable. No way they trade him, specially for Lowry lol.

    I don't think people realizes how good Murray is. He's like a Westbrook clone. If he can add a jump shot....watch out.

    I like Murray.. so I'd be on board. But ultimately the Spurs would have to put a $30M+ package together to make the numbers work. Will be hard to do that unless they want to give us someone like Aldridge, DeRozan (lol) or Gay.. and even then Gay only makes about $14M, so they'd have to expand the package.

    If Murray signs an extension he can't be traded this year. He's also a Klutch client apparently which could sour things for Masai and the Raptors (not sure if it would).

    I'm sure Lowry would love to go to SA, but I don't see how we can make it work. He just makes too much money.
    Not sold on Murray, at all. A PG or SG who can't shoot 3's in today's NBA is not even worth the effort of trying to paper around. Even Eric Bledsoe, who is a borderline all-star was just shaky enough as a shooter to allow the Raps to sag off him and provide help on the league MVP. Up to that point, the Bucks looked pretty much invincible and were steamrolling the league.

    I was curious about a trade there too, after looking at the trade machine it seems difficult. I dont think they have fully updated salaries, but I dont think SA has the contracts to make it work. Id love to get one of those young guards though.

    I think at least one of the vets gets moved unless we overachieve, itll be interesting to see what type of assets Masai goes for.

    At least we'd know what their result would be..win 50 games....win the first round in 7 (losing game 1 of course), then lose to Lebron James in 4 in round 2

    Murray is the best young piece on San Antonio. They're not gonna get rid of him. But Lowry-Derozan-Carroll-Gay would be a hilarious starting lineup. Dwane Casey wet dream reunion

    Miami would def be interested in Lowry I think. They're sneaky close to challenging for the east final imo I like their squad.. Lowry would be a big upgrade on Dragic who himself is actually pretty underrated

    that said, I dont wanna trade Lowry. We also have an outside at the east final and from there anything can happen
    Yeah, but Miami has the same problem every other team that really makes a lot of sense for Lowry has - hard to match salary, and even if they do, really hard to get enough value from them. So many teams have significant draft pick debts right now, and the teams with all the picks won't be on the market for veterans.
