Lowry isn't all that much better then Felton imo. Whats he avg over Felton 4 more pts a game and 2 assist, and your going to give them the store for that
    On July 11, 2012, Lowry was traded to the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] in exchange for [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and a future first round pick

    cool thanks...so basically they gave a first and nothing else...so why don't we offer something that doesn't include THJr and Shump. If Lowry is that much of an improvement, offer them Felton and our first. I know salaries have to match as well. Is it really worth it and the next thing you have to ask yourself is what type of $$ is this guy going to ask when his contract expires. Also where would you rate him as a PG. Is he top 10

    Rockets got a 2012 protected 1st round pick which was in the mid teens and a filler player who they cut. BTW, have you heard what they did to Nathans on Central Ave. I know you're from Yonkers.

    The Raptors gave up Gary Forbes and what turned out to be a protected pick that landed in the lottery. OKC selected Steve Adams this summer with pick #12. They acquired the pick via James Harden trade.

    Well it's been closed for about a year and it just reopened. They said it was going to have the same food when it reopened but far from it. Now it's like going to a Nathans in a mall, franks, FF and burgers. You can't get corn beef, brisket and pastrami, knishes etc., it's 1/3 the size of the old one, they also got rid of the video game place. The rest of the space was used for new retail stores, I thought they owned the space but it is owned by a real estate developer. I'll probably never set foot in the place again, sad.

    May I suggest a scenario. The Knicks front office wants to keep Melo. I believe they will. Melo can make more in New York than elsewhere. He and LaLa would be comfortable in LA, but the Clippers have no cap space to absorb Melo without giving up Griffin. I do not believe that will happen. I cannot imagine that Melo wants to be back with D'Antoni and I don't see how he and Kobe complement each other. If we keep Melo, we have the same team next year that we have this year. We will be well over the cap and without draft picks. In the following year -- 2015 -- we will have both a draft pick and cap space for significant free agents and more of the cap space if we move Felton and Shumpert off the books. I see a trade for Lowry with a give up of Felton and Shumpert and perhaps a protected 2018 pick. I do not like this scenario.

    as bad as we need a PG upgrade we should all agree to keep a 1st round pick and Hardaway JR.

    I would like to trade Shump for something more than Lowry...maybe throw in Valacuinus and then we could throw in Shump and Peace but Raps would say no.

    Just dont get screwed by ujiri

    i like Hardaway over shummp to be honest
