(Thanks for moving this into the thread, apologies for not seeing the original thread in the first place) I think Lowry would be a great fit for this Celtics team. Here is why:
He is not a ball dominant PG, which would let the Celtics run different, creative offensive sets, instead of forcing someone like Pierce be a playmaker. Rondo was a great playmaker, but now that he is done for the year, the offense has to and will change (Doc said so himself). Lowry is a smart passer and plays with a high bball iq. He is also a very strong rebounder for a guard. Not as good as Rondo, but nonetheless, a very above average rebounder. He also plays above average defense. He has improved so much since first coming into the league from Villanova.
This team doesn't need another PG who will put up double digit assist numbers. That will not fit the offense that they are going to start running post Rondo. They just need someone to fit into the offense and stabilize the point guard position.
The knock on Lowry is that he must be tough to coach. He asked out of Memphis, then asked out of Houston and now Toronto (who gave up a lotto pick to get him) wants to move him over Calderon. I don't really know whats going on behind the scenes, if he is a diva type or what. *Cliche line coming...* I think the Celtic culture will keep him in line and he will buy into what Doc/KG/PP are selling.
The question is, what does Toronto want? They don't need Bass when they have Big V, Ed Davis and Amir Johnson up front. They don't want Lee, since they just gave their 2-guard, Derozan, 40+ million...I don't think its worth moving AB or Sully (again, not sure how much Toronto wants either of those guys, considering the logjam in the front court, and the investment already made in Derozan). Besides offering Fab, a 1st I don't know what it would take for Toronto to bite.
Ideally they would take Bass along with Melo, and a first, but I don't see it happening unless a third team gets involved. What do others think of Lowry, his fit with the C's and what it would take to get him in Boston?
