The Raptors also SUCK, and I'm sure Nash would like another run at a championship before he is through. Plus, his family is in Phoenix, so he wants to be close to them. Toronto never had a shot.

The Nash to the Raptors idea made for a nice but yeah, no reason for him to come here. And he wants a chance at a ring, not happening in Toronto for a long long time.

The Raptors acquired someone and people seem excited. No idea who Lawdry or whoever is though.

"Sources tell Yahoo Sports the Raptors have reached an agreement to acquire Kyle Lowry from the Houston Rockets for a package that includes a future lottery pick."

Future lottery pick? WTF? How does that work? Don't you have to suck to be in the lottery? What if (hold back the snickering please) the Raptors do well?

This is why no one gives a good goddamn about the NBA.

I believe in the NBA you can trade your 1st round pick as a 'protected' or 'unprotected' pick. In this case the Raptors are making their 1st round pick 'unprotected' so if they end up in the lottery next year the rockets would still get the pick. If the raptors would have given the rockets a 'protected' 1st then, if they ended up in the lottery, they would have been able to keep that pick and the rockets would have received the following years 1st (unless they were in the lottery as well, in which case it would get pushed again).

Raptors will relocate before the Leafs win a cup.

...


Sarcasm

So basically because Steve Nash qualifies as a Superstar, the only way he would play in Canada is if i) the team was in BC (sorry Grizzlies), or ii) TO overpaid him.

Raptors offered him a 3 year $39M contract. He's 39 with chronic back problems. Can't get any more overpaid than that.

That makes sense, thanks for the explanation. I suppose it's no different than a conditional pick in hockey. Still, some of basketball's CBA rules are not friendly for the fan to understand. Trade exemptions being one of them.
