    Its the same people that went on about Masai leaving even though he has shown no indication of leaving either.

    If there is a good trade you can get for Lowry, you pull the trigger. He is still a good player at his age, so if you can, you try to bring him back in free agency. Not every player wants to go chase championships, Kyle got his here, so we don't know if he wants to go for another ring or if he is comfortable staying where he is.
    Yup. And Kyle is perhaps the best free agent available this summer.

    What is going to make this forum unbearable is the million posts on every game thread of OMG we need to trade Lowry SMH!!

    It’s not like every potential trade will be presented publicly for us to evaluate.

    • Embiid monster game against Miami tonight. 45-16-4-5-1
      I really don't believe the Raps would get by them in the post season right now.

      Absolutely zero D being played in the lakers/Rockets game

        Lat year's team was a contending team. This year's team is flat out garbage.
        Why don't you go join a Celtics forum or something? Pretty sure 98% of people don't come here to read you repeatedly say our team is garbage, especially considering they clearly are not. Troll somewhere else? No.loyalty, no faith, not really a raptors fan, just a person who can't take a few games lost and throws in the towel for the whole year based on 10 games.

        Its fine to critique the players, some coaching decisions, some changes we could make to get get better, but the team deserves better than to be called "garbage". Lame.

        • The bigs problem could mostly go away. We can't be starting Len or Baynes for matchup reasons (at least not until we see a lot more of Baynes and he re-establishes himself as an option). Start Boucher, let OG handle any C's he can't, give Baynes a chance to try to provide value against bench players.

          Then see if there is anything substantial out there at the deadline when we have expirings and hopefully a positive value Norm to deal, plus an excess of cheap guards (TD ideally).

              In case anybody is interested in which FA centers are still out there....

                Allow yourself the possibility that you are wrong.
                the fact is the team still has a lot of talent, games will be won this year, corrections will be made, trades will be made, they will make the playoffs.

                  You know what's even more lame? Somebody with 16 posts telling a long-time contributor to get TF off the board.

                    Those options kind of suck.. see a bunch of Alex Len's out there. Real difference will be via trade. I like the idea of trying to get Dwight Powell for Norm Powell. Not sure Dallas would do that deal though.

                      Dallas already have enough wings and what they lack are bigs.

                        He's not mentioned on that list, but you guys think Nerlens Noel could be a decent back up for Toronto? More a defensive minded big that can help out on the boards, block shots and he's still only 26 so possibly room to develop.

                          fuck no. this dude hasnt even attempted a single 3 in his entire career. we need stretch bigs to make something even remotely like last years offense work.

                            He signed a contract with NY.. can't be traded for about a month still.

                              I wonder what it would take to get Serge Ibaka (the Centre for the Los Angeles Clippers). He's not perfect but he can stretch the floor, hit the midrange, help on the glass with put backs, and it's a pretty good shot blocker. Would certainly be an upgrade over baynes. He has a ton of playoff experience, and I hear great in the locker room for morale and mentoring younger players. I think he also won a NBA title as the sixth man not too long ago if I'm not mistaken. Probably out of our reach though.
                              2019 NBA Champions. Glad to have doubted the doubters.

                              • Also wouldn't mind giving Skal Labissiere a shot as a reclamation project. He's long, very mobile and has 3-pt range. Unfortunately for him, he got drafted into the Kangz organization with like 20 other centers, lol. His numbers have always been pretty good, so it's not like he flat out sucks or anything. Still just 24. Can't be any worse than Len and Baynes, can he?
