Recent trade rumors notwithstanding, I’d be surprised if the Raptors deal Lowry out of town.
Especially in light of his GM hugging him after this game: http://www.raptorsrepublic.com/2014/01/27/vine-video-kyle-lowry-hugs-masai-ujiri-aint-getting-traded/
He’s having a career season. He deserves an All-Star nod but so does Derozan, and there’s no way they’re giving the Raptors two All-Stars. I’m torn, but it’s most likely going to be Demar going to the ASG.
Yes or no: Lowry’s a Raptor next season?
I doubt any team will offer him much more than $10 million/year, given how most coaches feel about him. He found a good fit in Toronto, and I’ll be surprised if he wants to go elsewhere. If the Raps don’t trade him by the deadline – which is now unlikely – I think he’s staying.
The only reason I can think of trading him is if he wants out and then we should try to get as much as we can rather than letting him walk for nothing. If he wants to stay, you keep writing em’ checks!
He’s become the heart and soul of our team and seems genuinely happy with this squad though. If this is an elaborate act to increase his trade stock, then he deserves an Oscar too.
this was a huge shot considering that the game came down to the last shot
