"Though he’s out now injured, the Raptors supposedly would like to put Kyle Lowry in a trade package and keep Jose Calderon. The Raptors give up 11 more points per game when Lowry is on the court compared with Calderon. NBA.com"

Looks like the Raptors are leaning with Jose again! Personally, I have no ill feelings towards Jose. I think he is a classy Raptors player. Lowry won the hearts of many Raptors' fans in the beginning of the season but started to lose his composure after he got injured.
Should the Raptors' move Lowry? Or will it be one of BC's failures because he traded our protected first round pick?
What can the Raptors get? Are they targeting a SF such as Granger or Gay? What will the Raptors do?
Nooooo we may keep our pick which we may keep as its top 3 protected, but may lose in the very deep 2014 draft. I'm tired of Jose he puts up empty stats seeing as he plays matador defense every time down the floor; Kyle has been slowed by injury so that has to factor in on how atrocious he's been on D, the only people we should ship out is Bargs and Bryan Colangelo
I believe Jose was averaging 15 and 9 while Lowry was out and Raptors were playing more fluidly. Not to mention Ross and Davis' games have improved.
There are so many speculations around the Raptors but I am HOPING Bargnani is the first player to be traded. He WAS my favourite Raptor until this season and we see his lack of passion whenever he is on the court.
Lowry maybe going to Milwaukee for Jennings? Seems reasonable to me because the Bucks did not sign Jennings before the deadline and it has passed already. Might as well get something for him. Not to mention him and DD are good friends and Jennings said good things about Toronto.
Well if we have to trade him we better get another young point guard, our team is young and Calderon will not be around for the future when we become a playoff team, a guy like Jennings will be but I think Milwaukee will want more than just Lowry for him
i personally like lowry as our pg. if we can package jose and li mago for a high quality player i'd do it in a heart beat.
we've had jose for 8 years with 2 playoff appearances where he didn't play that well and the rest of the years were losing seasons. we've won 5 straight (lost today) but i feel like his win streak and his improved play helps his trade value. it doesn't justify keeping him to me.
I hope the mavs can trade for but we don't have much to give up
I would keep Lowry unless you can straight up get a better one. I would try to get rid of Bargs but i would focus on Lowry, Ross, Derozon, JonasV.
If BC trades Lowry he is a straight fool. We have been down this road with Calderon before, he is not a starting caliber PG.
im telling you, calderon is effing with us again. the dude is the number 1 troll for the raps for many seasons now. plays like an all star when replacing a starter and then just chills and relaxes when he finally takes over that spot. the raptors would be smart to just stick to lowry and trade calderon while his value is up there.
