Just a thought but if all suggestions are true and Lowe is going to trade Comrie AND is willing to wait patiently to do it so he can maximize his return, then wouldn't it be most likely a deal with one of the big spending teams?

With the CBA coming up I would expect there are a few teams out there (meaning the teams with the highest payrolls) that are looking at this year as their last kick at the cat before they are forced to cut payroll. Based on that, as the year rolls on and some of these teams are looking for that last bit of offence for a cup run, they may actually be willing to overpay for a guy like Comrie. Afterall he is immediate offence and fits any team post CBA, some of these teams may be willing to give up one or even a couple real blue chip prospects that could pan out very well for us long term.

At any rate, who ever he is traded for, I am half expecting the returning player/players to be diamonds in the rough or prospects that won't immediately be comparable to Comrie.
