Question Do Raptors need new wave of PG's?

They think so...

I personally think that Lowry, despite his heated plays can work for the better of the team for next season. But im still confused wether the Raptors are really tanking or just making that playoff seed.

if we want to go forward (in the playoffs hunt) i would say lowry need to go.
but there isn't that many better available PG whom can do better.

I like dragic or teague.

Rather have Lowry than Dragic if we're not tanking. Teague has a higher ceiling to me though, so if we are tanking I take him over both.

Why would we have to let go of lowry for a playoff position? He was out of shape and had issues with the coach last season. Both are likely resolved so he should be like in his HOU days, but prolly better.

Lowry and/or DD can be dealt for a PG if need be.

Our PG situation is still not great. I refuse to call Stone our 2nd PG. 10 mpg is ok, but just imagine Lowry goes down

How about Beaubois?

Roddy B wouldn't be a splash. He is coming off hand surgery and could be had for pennies
But I really like his game

They should push for Collison, he'd be a good replacement when lowry is down if it comes down to that situation. btw is Telfair a 3rd/4th PG now?

Teague is terrible. He's 25 years old and hasn't found his niche. He just never developed into a true PG in the NBA. Right now, he doesn't look much more than a backup.

Dragic is ok, but he's not better than Lowry. He's a terrible defender, but he's arguably a better distributor. Not very physical or tough.

If the team wants to win now, Lowry gives them the better shot at making the playoffs. If they want to tank, then trade Lowry for Teague and get a pick back.

I gotta agree with u. Lowry when he is in shape, which apparently he is now is better than both those guys.

if you look at every team that has championship contending talent they usually have at least 2 or 3 "star" type players
and if you look closer at those teams at least 1 or the guards is usually a top level player
in the nba these days the PG or primary ball handler needs to be really good because at least half the time they end up having to go 1 on 1 or at minimum need to make a play to get fouled
on this team neither the PG or SG are good enough, we can keep lowry only if someone like Gay can improve to the level of being the primary ball handler because lowry and DD aren't elite enough at all

KL is the second best player we have, period.

RG
KL
DD
JV (depending on what he does this season he could move up to 1 or 2)
AJ
