The Toronto Raptors would prefer to trade Kyle Lowry over Jose Calderon, according to league sources.

Lowry was acquired last offseason from the Houston Rockets in exchange for Gary Forbes and a future first-round lottery pick.

Lowry is averaging 13.8 points and 5.8 assists in 27.7 minutes behind Calderon.

The Raptors have wasted Jose Calderon's career.

Let him leave. Please.

The rafters of Toronto, hilarious.

If we traded Rondo, Lowry would be the guy Id want. Toronto just doesn't have that second piece to make trading Rondo worth it.

What about Rondo + Bass for Lowry + Ed Davis +Pietrus?

Not kidding about Pietrus. We could use his defense and three point shooting

Sorry i wouldn't do this trade. Raps wouldn't either.

It is inefficient to have both lowry and rondo. They are starting pg's.

plus kleiza and barney stink

What about Jrue holiday?  I heard he's better than Irving.   ;)

Too bad the Raptors wouldn't even consider this.  This is a pretty lopsided deal in the C's favor.
