Default Kyle Lowry: Anyone Interested?

Kyle Lowry believes he and Kevin McHale can no longer coexist.

Lowry underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia and torn abductor muscles three weeks ago and briefly returned to the Toyota Center on Friday.

“I don’t think so,” Lowry said about whether he and McHale can continue. “I honestly think it would be tough. Things have to be addressed. The situation would have to be addressed.

“If things aren’t addressed coaching-wise, I guess I have to be moved.”

not even in the slightest. Rather keep Bayless. I actually would like to give Bayless the reins if we don't draft a PG...

Lowry is alright but meh. He's 26 so he's in his prime right now so if the Raptors were looking to build a contender right now, it would make sense. I don't see him as having much potential to get any better than what he is now.

I hope that the Raptors are still rebuilding and not looking to make quick short-term fixes to accelerate (and screw up) that process. But we all know that's exactly what is going to happen.

WHOAAAAAAA there buddy. Are we thinking about the same Bayless? I hope you made that statement purely out of a wish to further tank.

Lowry isn't exactly a 'short term' fix. It's not like he's 32 here. I'd certianly be interested in him. I find this story strange though. I think he sees himself getting passed by Dragic and wants out maybe? Using a rift with McHale as the reason.

Not really, he is just another piece that would be good enough to keep the raps out of the lottery.

I dont see the point in getting players over the age of 24, this team is going through a youth movement so the only exceptions of getting an older player should be a legit star. (a josh smith or deron williams would be prime examples).

If we're going into the season with Calderon and Bayless; I'd rather have Bayless starting than Calderon is what I'm saying. Bayless will have his miscues, but he won't give you any less production than Lowry if given the same minutes. It's not about tanking. If we don't improve the PG spot from either a trade, draft or free agency and keep status quo, then Bayless should start.

I don't think Lowry is an improvement over either Calderon or Bayless...

I like Lowry a lot, but I'd rather get Dragic.

That being said, I would love to see Lowry as a Raptor.

The Raptors are extremely high on Lowry, so there is little doubt – despite Morey’s desire to keep Lowry in the fold – that he and Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo will discuss a Lowry deal. If that falls through the Raptors could instead pursue Dragic, though I do not know if he is a favourite of theirs like Lowry or not.

After Lowry burned the Raptors for a game-high 26 points (including 4-for-4 from three) in a three-point win in Houston, I asked Raptors head coach Dwane Casey what he thought of Lowry and Casey lauded the guard for his toughness and ability.

“He’s a hell of a competitor. He’s their heart and soul and spirit of their team and I love the way he plays,” Casey said.

Long-time Raptor Alvin Williams, now a scout with the team, is extremely close with Lowry and is one of his mentors. Both are from Philadelphia and both played for Villanova. “Alvin is my main man,” Lowry once said.

O.o this is a guy who started the season damn near averaging triple doubles. He definitely cooled off and then got injured, but overrated? How?

I know what he did last year. I think people like him because of those triple double early in the year and think that's what you're gonna get. I think otherwise. I think this is an inconsistent player who is not a good shooter and pouts way too much when things don't go his way...
