I think everything has to go right for lowry to be a top 10 pg, and if it does the first rounder was well worth it.

being a raps fan, I expect the worst

If everything breaks right and people catch on fast we have the makings of a decent defensive guard rotation (Jose notwithstanding).

Top 10 or not,Lowry will be a good fit for this team moving forward. I'm excited as well because I believe he'll be this biggest difference maker of the new additions on the Raptors roster.

^^ in the short run yes. But in the long run jv and Ross and Landry (I'm a believer) will prove to be most important as they will be our core In the future

No brainer, he has by far the most experience and is a defense first PG.

i'd argue the most experience. Bargnani has had more playoff appearances? but i'm not sure

Honestly I'm really hoping for the rotation to be Lowry/DeRozan and Calderon/Ross so that at least both our guards won't be blown by.

Some may argue that JV will be the biggest difference maker if he develops quickly,because the Raps are weak at effective C depth where as,even if Lowry doesn't play Calderon is a capable starting PG and Lucas 3 is decent in relief. Gray & Magloire at C behind Valancunias isn't that strong.

Well, Amir played a lot of center last year so he can have a lot of minutes there. Even though he shouldn't, he clearly plays much better at the 4, which was one of the main reasons he struggled last year. Just saying, Amir could manage some 5.

Well, let's just say that if Lowry brings to us what he brought to houston the last couple seasons prior to his injury and Valanciunas can develop quickly as you say we're a playoff team. In that case Valanciunas is the most important for sure because he's way more of a question mark right now.

I doubt Goran will have a better season than Lowry.
