    The Raptors has got to have the worst GM in the business. He could have gotten both Ross and Lowry on draft day. Drummond was still on the board and Houston would have easily given up Lowry and the 12th pick for 8.

    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.

    It's pretty entertaining.

    1. There was no proof that the rockets would have done that trade, only rumors that they wanted Drummond.
    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.

    There were plenty of rumors of Houston trying to trade up to the top 10 to land Drummond. That's enough evidence for me. Ross would not have been picked before 12. Detroit, New Orleans, and Portland weren't interested. Getting Lowry back was a desperate attempt to salvage their Free Agency debacle. Lowry wasn't their backup plan. Dragic was. You can spin it any way you like, they've pretty much wasted their resources and improved very little in the process.

    What? I'm not spinning anything. You can't just say what they should have done after all of this has 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?

    You got it. They were so desperate that they gave lottery protection to the Rockets for Lowry. That's unheard of. The plan was flawed from the start and they paid heavily for it as a result. It's as simple as that. It was an act of desperation.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    i think cuban was banking on landing dwill. i will say this, the players they lost were their old ones, so not they have an opportunity to get young. i expect a couple of bad seasons from them though.
