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.

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?

Lowry would thrive in NY Mark my words!!! 18-8 type pg here!!!! Bye felton, bye mwp, bye draft pick, hello lowry welcome to the ny knicks! Your our starting pg.

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.

Bargnani + JR Smiff for Pau Gasol. Money works. 


Gasol is unhappy, still, and poorly utilized, and Bargnani would fill the system need at PF much better.


Get it done.

I would think twice on trading SHump for Lowry

Knicks are going to get punked AGAIN!

Ujiri is running a basic Nigerian scam while Proky is playing Russian Mafia tactics on the other side for the second straight time; Melo not included.

How is this possible?

@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.

@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.

I'm cool with this if we play murry. woodson has to get murry a real shot.

@OLD_KNICK I have a feeling it's going to stretch until Sunday.  The deal can't go down until then and Ujiri wants to play everyone off each other as long as possible.  Dolan watching how pathetic this team will look with no legit PG can only help him.  He's too smart to pull the trigger too soon.

@OLD_KNICK I agree with you Old Knicks. Will we lose on the deal again!

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.

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

@orlando_knickfan true.  he's only marginally better than a healthy felton.  But still we might never see a 'healthy felton' again.  the trade will make us better in the short term but the way it's going down and what we're giving up is just SOOOO Knicks... it's like we will never learn.

@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.

I agree giving up shump for him is ok, because they  have THJr., but  this isn't some power move. He's better than felton but the knicks won't be a title contender if they get lowry.

@thatsagoodpoint if you're rich it doesnt matter how you look.  Have you seen the bunnies that sit beside him at the games?
