NBA Trade Rumors: Toronto’s Kyle Lowry to Detroit for Greg Monroe?

http://raptorsrapture.com/2014/02/03/nba-trade-rumors-kyle-lowry-detroit-greg-monroe/

I think that is just blind speculation. The Raptors do not need another big.

But the argument that Lowry will get traded soon is compelling.

That would be a terrible deal for the Raptors.

Not a good deal, but it kind of makes sense if you accept that Lowry is going to test the free agent market.

Raptors lose Fields' contract, and Granger walks at season's end. The Raptors are then looking good cap wise. They could make some good free agent offers.

Watson can back up Vasquez.

That's a terrible idea because Vasquez is a decent backup at best.  "We can backup our decent backup point guard with a decent backup point guard"

The whole point is to try to improve the standing of the franchise.  It doesn't matter how much cap space you have, people aren't going to want to sign when DeRozan is your best player and you just let one of the best guards in the league go for nothing to shed a short term contract.

I agree it is not a good idea to trade Lowry. But Ujuri has a history.

This is a good analysis:

Trading him for Granger and Watson is the opposite of "selling high"

This could be an interesting trade. Then send Johnson somewhere to find a decent point guard?

I just do not see how Monroe/Jonas would work together.

Hopefully better than Smith-Monroe-Drummound. Does Jonas have a midrange game?

Not particularly.  Plus, I think the bigger problem is on the defensive end.

Ehh...yeah, their offense may be iffy, but if I remember right Val doesn't require too many touches. Defensively it'd be a trainwreck and probably worth keeping Johnson around as a six man.
