        I remember reading a while back that the Raps and John Lucas III could have had a deal going, interesting.

        So our PG spot could look like:

        John Lucas III, Jose, Lowry

        That is pretty deep. I like it.

          Do you guys think he'd be OK to back up Lowry if Jose is traded? I always thought he was a good enough PG to be a backup, but I haven't seen him play much

            +1 I'd be fine if one of our point guards got injured if he was our 3rd

              Hes definitely solid. His PER was through the roof when he first started to play when rose for injured. I think he's better than most if not all 3rd string pg's but I'm also not sure if I'd want him as our permanent backup.

                I think were really find out if Calderon going to stay or go after signing how much money they throw JL3

                  I'm a BIG jl3 fan. Love this signing.

                  Pretty well means Jose is definitely gone sooner than later though.

                    I'd agree. He seems too good (based on that incredible sample size) to be a 3rd string but not sure if he's ready to be an everyday 2nd PG

                        Post joses departure kyle will probably be playing 30-35 min ... lucas should be good enough to fill the rest of the minutes.

                          I can't wait for the naysayers to bash the signing.... Even though the Bulls and HEAT both wanted him.

                          I am not sure about everyday backup though. From his gamelog he seemed to play alright when given opportunity. To be working this long to crack the NBA, I am going to assume high character guy much like Andersen. Major assumption on my part.

                            @WolstatSun: Source confirms John Lucas III to Raptors report from Marc Stein/ESPN
                            Looks like its official

                              Depending on what the contract is for, I'm guessing 3rd stringer, not 2nd. I don't like his size especially since Lowry is already fairly short. I don't recall seeing him play so I cannot really comment on his play, but from what I see in this thread he'd make a decent 3rd stringer/backup - so I'm happy. That probably means the end of Uzoh... thanks for dropping a triple double when we needed a loss
