I think the value of the #8 is too high to include in this sort of trade. If Colangelo drafts wisely, he should get a better player than Lowry for the long term.
What are people talking about man?!? Not sure he can be a starter on a top flight team!? The friggen' LA LAKERS (top flight enough?) traded for the guy!
He is a B3ast! Anyone that says otherwise doesn't know squat about basketball. Come on, the guy is lethal on D and can put up a trip dub on almost any night!! You guys who "aren't sure" about Lowry honestly don't have a clue.

Jose is mediocrity. A fellow member on another forum where I'm a regular and have much more seniority - he compares Jose on the raps to Bob Rae for the Liberals. I think it's a fair comparison.

So by scarcity, we really need somebody who can create their own shot at a high rate/high level of efficiency. And just as badly we need a superstar. Alas, we're not getting either this year, and chances are good we won't have either for at least a few years from now on, until the next rebuilding project

what a negative nancy holy shit.

and as Lou Forigno would say... I disagree with your assessment 110%.

Calderone is good at passing the ball and not turning it over.

That is about where it ends.

I love Jose but his defense is a liability that just can't be overlooked.

The Raptors are trying to be HARD as a rock on Defense. Jose is more like a moist tissue. He just doesn't fit in. He had a great year ... trade him ASAP and get a real point guard that fits in with the system.

I could probably score 20 on Jose Calderone.

How much would Jose score on you, then?

He doesn't like to shoot, so maybe not a whole lot.
