Knicks ‘regrouping’ on Lowry trade

It looked dead on early Friday, but the Kyle Lowry deal is heating up again.

The Knicks front office is “regrouping” to try and swing a deal for Lowry (Wojnarowski). But, the crosstown Nets are getting in the mix, and gaining traction to land the point guard.

But, nothing is imminent.

Why would Lowry go to the Nets to backup D'will when he will be a starter on the Knicks. Don't fall their tricks. No THJ and no pick.

Maybe it's my complete disdain for all things Nets, but does anyone else feel like they're feigning interest to drive up the price for NY? They probably don't like being the only team with fewer picks than the Knicks.

No THJr, No Shumpert, No pick, unless it's a package for a star or we're getting youth/picks in return. A Lowry rental is neither of those.


As much as I like Lowry, it's not worth it. How many times are we going to give away the future for mediocre players?

I haven't left a comment in a year but I had to log in for this one...


Kyle Lowry... A career 41% shooter who is "excelling" on a bum 7-13 Toronto Raptors team, because he's putting up a whole 14pts 7 ast this year... CHRIS DUHON averaged 12/7 on the Knicks back in '09.


Kyle Lowry is a nice player. But he's not worth our 2 best young assets. I just don't get it. Somebody PLEASE explain to me how this trade makes us a better team. This year? Next year? 


If Dolan really voted this trade, good for him. Finally did something right. Even a broken watch is right twice a day.

i know many here want woodson out but i can't see where a quality coach would want to come here and work for a meddler like dolan, he probably makes it nearly impossible to get top talent for the bench and the fo.

What other teams are rushing to get Lowry other than the Nets? I can't believe wer are that stupid to want and give up a 1st pick and our young assets for KYLE LOWRY. Smh

So Murry is to step into a NBA PG position and thrive in such a position which he never played? This Kid will get run out of the league here in NYC quicker than Toney Douglas.

@jax13 exactly why Toronto has leverage even though Lowry's in a walk year.  Nothing else out there.  Chicago had to resort to picking up DJ Augustin off the trash heap.  Pretty soon teams will start calling the Knicks asking for Chris Smith.

@jax13 They want Plumlee Bogdanovic and a first.  Brooklyn's offering Teletovic Taylor and Bogdanovic.

@Ghanem Daibes Wouldn't give a draft pick or THjr for Lowry but I'd help MWP,Shumpert and Felton pack!

@cole3244But he also spends a ton of money on the team which cannot be said for most of the teams in the NBA.  While he may meddle at times, he also wants to win and will put fourth the resources to do so.

@lobcity Not for Lowry. For beating out the nets for him. That's what Toronto is hoping for.

I dont want to do the trade if we have to give up assets but clearly the Warriors and Lakers also want him.  The Warriors have trade exceptions so they don't even have to send back salary.

@moneyball A few minutes at a time won't be a problem. Maybe even put him out there with Prigs and take some minutes from JR and Shump if they're off He can learn a lot being on the floor with Prigs even if it is to close out a quarter here and there. He needs to slow down and learn to pace the offense. Garbage time just encourages him to speed up and down the court and chuck up shots.

@BiggieSmalls Murrry is not a PG. That position is why we own the record we do. The few games Felton has not been great but did not suck..we won hands down. WE NEED A PG.

@rgm891 If Shump and Peace don't play..you know whats up...and we win big BTW.

@moneyball Honestly, at this point now as long as there is no draft pick involved I do the deal. Shump, Felton, and MWP, for Lowry take it or leave it.

@NYKnickerBockerbecause he is a rental. nobody is going to give up too much especially if he is not happy to be there. What is Nets gain to giving up lots of assets for a rental bench player. If I'm Steve Mills, I'm calling their bluff.

I think many are confused about this for some reason.

@tommy2b Why would he re-sign with the Warriors? He wans to be a starter. Why would they want to rent him for this season. They aren't making a move on the championship this season to my knowledge.

Are they giving up young Assets & 1st round picks? I think not, especially to be a backup pg.

Its ok to be intetested but dont be suckered and give up 1st round picks and young assets. Knicks are looking like the dummies that wants to. Tge Nets are not giving a draft pick for a backup pg.

I want jonas if we give up Shump.

I assure you this deal won't happen without a 1st round pick involved.  And for that reason I hope it doesn't.

@BiggieSmalls@moneyball "some where wanted him installed as the go to PG from game 2.. "


Isn't it straw man to misrepresent a different opinion by exaggeration?  A more reasonable representation of posters' attitudes towards Murry would be:


"Some here wanted him [Murry] to be given the opportunity to play a few rotation minutes."


Not that crazy.
