Yep. Lowry to Raptors. Billups and Jamal Crawford to Clippers:
But instead they took Ross at 8, went all in on Nash, and even agreed to sign Landry to make sure the Knicks couldn't obtain Nash. And the end result? Nash never wanted to go there, They're stuck with Landry Fields, and now.. They've just given up next year's lottery pick to Houston and gets Lowry.
2. Ross was high on lots of teams boards he could have been gone at 12. They got the guy they wanted who knows what could have happened
3. They wanted Nash and yes that came back to bite them but they had a plan and stuck to it.
4. Getting Lowery was clearly a backup plan, after this all unfolded.
They wanted Ross, they took him. Ross is going to be a hell of a player IMO. They were not offered the number 12 pick and Lowery for 8, so that point is nothing. They wanted Nash he was the prize, they lost out. And yes when they could not get who they wanted they fell to Lowry. I don't understand what you would have wanted them to do. The only thing that is stupid that they did was sign Landry, but it was a risk they took to grab Nash. Should they just have said to hell with it after they lose out on Nash and not made the deal for Lowry? because things didn't go there way for Nash?
I have a feeling we are going to get Nick Young with that Jamal Crawford signing. Well hopefully we do.
"I want ONLY 9 eyebrows in the starting lineup for the Hornets next year." I typed this before the draft lottery
I hate the CLippers, but if I'm them, I definitely go for Ray Allen harder than Crawford. Apparently they disagreed however.

Makes Raptors deft look horrible!
2013-1014 is the season the Pelicans fanbase grows!!!!
Lowry's a very good player and even better, not old and on a team friendly deal. That was a good trade.
Fields is overpaid as hell, but on the plus side he was a plus rotation player for NY even with his shot completely going in the tank. If he rediscovers his rookie stroke from outside, he'll end up helping them. He does a lot of little things well that go unnoticed by most ... rebounds very well for a guard, passes the ball extremely well, he's good at scoring points without the ball from offensive rebounds and cuts to the lane.
20 mil is still LOL for him, but the Raps offseason hasn't been a terrible one.
I think you'll see some teams overpay bums simply to get to the cap floor... don't be shocked at some of t he ridiculous contracts that teams give out.
Raptors starting 5:
I ve seen worse, specialy in the East
The first trilogy:

The Mavs are getting destroyed this offseason hahaha.
"I'm not going to allow my putative owner to answer that question, this is an NBA related press conference. Paul Tagliabue and Roger Goodell have collectively sung their praises of Tom and if uh ESPN has a problem with that tell Mr. Skipper to call me at my office."
This might have been brought up earlier in the thread, I haven't been keeping up... But what's up with Javale McGee?
