Default Locke: Rockets offering 16th and Lowry for 8th

Here is another possible draft day trade that could bring Lowry to Toronto:

Reports Houston is offering #16 and Kyle Lowry to Toronto for #8 - if Jazz had gotten lucky they would have #8 would u do deal as Utah?

Don't know how reliable the source is, but if Drummond or Lillard aren't available I would do this deal.

I don't think K. Lowry is the end all be all but you do this trade....since yesterday!

The fact is,Lowry is already a proven starter with all star potential who hasn't even reached his ceiling as a player. In addition,Toronto is acquiring a 1st round pick only dropping 8 spots. Still a boat load of talent left at #16 which means they could possibly draft M. Harkless,T.Ross,D. Green at SF and if they get luck maybe even J. Lamb.

The main thing holding up this deal is that the Raptors believe they're the front runners for signing Steve Nash.

Even at his old age Nash is better than Lowry and the whole Canadian thing is another factor but I think Toronto should do the trade with Rockets and will ultimately. Nash isn't going to win a Championship with the Raptors and would serve better on an immediate contender in search of a ring to complete his already magnificent hall if fame career.

Coming out of the draft with Lowry and Harkless would be hard to consider a failure.

Why would they accept this and reject the 5th and Hayes from Sac?

BC DO IT; You can deal with Nash later ; what have you got to lose? If we dont come with either Lowry or Nash by July i'll be fucking piss off.

BC really needs to pull the trigger, otherwise Sacramento will get Lowry.

If they offer the 12th with Lowry, it's worth it, otherwise it's better to get Nash and keep #8
