man if theres any truth to that lowry thing, i'd be SOOO pissed. BC even said, when there is a good opportunity right in front of us, we must take it. Not wait for some BS drama Nash will probably have us go through.

I like Ross, I wouldn't give him up for Lowry straight up, especially since we haven't even seen what he can do for us yet on the court.

Yeah, the thing is, we could have probably gotten their 12/14/16th pick and gotten Ross with one of them.

Yes, a PG who can actually play D, isn't 38 years old, can rebound a bit, is well rounded is worse than a rookie SG/SF who (correct me if I'm wrong) did not play in March Madness.

Also, as batman has said, we could've gotten another pick too.

Well, first of all, there's only room for one masked bat on these forums. I challenge Batman to a duel!

Secondly, we have to look at the bigger picture. Lowry would have been nice, sure, but we are not in any position to be trading away high draft picks for anything less than an impact player that can get us over the hump of mediocrity. That's not to say Lowry wouldn't have an impact on this team, it's that he alone would not propel this team into a perennial playoff threat. We'd be stuck on treadmill island for the foreseeable future.

I'll take my chances with Ross and see what he can do.

Some twitter stuff

The Toronto Raptors could have traded the eighth pick for Kyle Lowry, but they held off, choosing instead to aggressively pursue Steve Nash.

Sean Deveney: Toronto #Raptors not just making a FA pitch for Steve Nash. They're pitching him on post-retirement opportunities, too.
