I'm extremely happy we are trading the pick for an established player. All the options at #8 were disappointing, and we needed to get better somewhat significantly.

I only wonder if we trade the #8 for Gay, if it is possible still to trade for Lowry.

If we can, Lowry + Gay to this team would be a big step forward. Both young good NBA players who fill positions of need on this team.

PG: Lowry
SG: DeRozan
SF: Gay
C: Valanciunas
PF: Bargnani

That could potentially, just maybe, fight for a playoff spot...
I hold out hope that perhaps we can get Lowry in payment (with additions by the Raptors) for helping to facilitate another trade involving Houston. I just wonder if the team would have the pieces to even help get to the value necessary for Lowry if they trade Davis+8th+something for a SF.
