Is Kyle Lowry worth it?
« on: January 28, 2013, 11:20:19 AM »
Marc Stein made it a hot topic today. I don't think it is worth it to make that sort of trade. With the value Tor gave up to get him, we are not landing Kyle without moving Bradley or Sullinger.

Thoughts?

This team with Lowry, would be a better team than they were with Rondo IMO. Lowry can shoot, finish, and dish. He's very good. The only thing he's really lacking is amazing speed. Not sure what it would take to get him though.

I could be wrong, but I had the impression that he could be had for significantly less than that.

If it costs anyone, it costs Bradley, and to that I say nayyy.

No he's not worth it, not with Rondo on the roster.

We'd have to give up a pick and/or Sullinger/Bradley to get him and the team needs all the young assets it has going forward.

I say no. Especially for a 4 month rental. His contract is only 1 mil guaranteed next year. When Rondo comes back, Lowry he may or may not be a good trade asset. He value talent wise might be good, but he would also be moving to yet ANOTHER team which might scare folks away.

It wouldnt be worth it to give up Lee or Sully for 4 months of Lowry, then having to pay him 6 mil as a back up or risk losing him for nothing.

It really depends what we have to give up. I don't think you trade Sully or Bradley for him, but if he can be had by trading a first and taking on one of their bad deals like Landry Fields, I probably do it.

I agree. Calderon is their starter and they are committed to him for some strange reason even though Lowry is a better player. Maybe he could be had for less.

What did Stien say? I thought about it yesterday. I mean if they decided to try and get him then look at it this way. He comes in and is a better shooter than Rondo, and a pretty decent rebounder. He could fill a role while Rondo is out. His contract expires after next season as well. He could be here until Rondo comes back and either A. Be his backup or B. Be a trade asset at the deadline next year. OR C. Be an expiring contract.

I would deal Bradley for Lowry. How many shooting guards do we need? We already have Terry, Lee and Barbosa. I know Avery is better than those 3 but we need a point guard right now.

You have to give to get, unfortunately.

Now if I had to give up Sullinger, then I would say no.

Sullinger I think is very valuable as he's also a big.

If that was the case, I'd rather go by a PG committee of AB, Lee and Terry.

Lowry is a 42% shooter for his career. This season he has done better with the three ball at 38% but is only shooting 41.7% from the field. Give me Rondo any day over Lowry.
