It's an awful trade idea that no chance of happening because of Toronto.

The Boston-Sacramento part is a credible idea. Whether you'd do it or not is another matter. But at least it is a genuine and realistic idea.

However, the Toronto part of the exchange is absolutely ridiculous. Lowry by himself for Tyreke is an overpay at this point in time. DeRozan by himself for Tyreke is really good value for Sacramento. The two of them together for Tyreke? Ridiculous.

I would prefer Tyreke Evans to Kyle Lowry. Tyreke has more star talent.

This and also if we did not include Fab Melo. We're giving up the best player right here on the best contract.

And trade that sees Rondo go out for Cousins is going to be one for the future rather than a win now move so the guard with more potential is the more valuable asset than the superior win-now player in K.Lowry.

I'm not sure I agree with this. The height that DMC and Garnett bring to us could give teams fits, and give us an advantage over the Heat that we really don't have right now.

Plus, the defensive combo of Lowry and Bradley would be fantastic. Two incredible on-ball defenders giving backcourts nightmare.

The only reason to trade Rondo would be to dump Jeff Green as well. Any trade that ships out Rondo and keeps an albatross on the roster is a non-starter, IMO.

I'd rather not have Lowry, and its hard to imagine Toronto being interested.

lol, how is he already an albatross?  Can we at least wait a season or so before we decide that he already failed?

The guy's coming off of heart surgery.  I want more from him too, but let's be reasonable here.

What if it was Calderon instead of Lowry?

i have been saying for days now that sactown will try a 3-team trade involving cousins and evans but repeatedly shot down...i duly expect the obligatory defamation of simmon's character...or mine...no worries...as a pre-requisite rationalization...rondo is too high a price for what we are getting in this though...

I don't think Tyreke and Calderon could co-exist.

Calderon, he needs a quite a bit of time on the ball to take advantage of his skills as a floor general, leader and facilitator offensively. Tyreke's game isn't conducive to that type of PG play. Too weak off the ball. Far too reliant on having the ball in his hands.

I think Lowry and Tyreke would work well together. Lowry is more of a scorer than Calderon. Can go and off the ball with greater ease without losing a large amount of his own individual effectiveness (unlike Calderon). Lowry and Tyreke would complement one another well. Give you a nice 1-2 punch in a pick and roll orientated offense.

I don't like it for Toronto unless they are getting two firsts in addition.

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
Kyle Lowry is injury prone, but that's the only reason I wouldn't do it.
I like Marcus Smart

I think I'd do it, though I suspect I'd be in the minority. I really like the idea of combining Garnett and Cousins. Two great post players, two very capable passers. The offense would be a thing of beauty.
