Wiggins who at this point is a role player for Lowry who is an all star seemed like a no brainer to me. As a Toronto fan I know our team would get 15 wins worse making that move, which is kind of why I want it haha
1. Would Lowry be OK coming off the bench next season?
2. Would Lowry resign with us for a cheaper, bench role.
Wiggins absolutely has a role with the Warriors, especially on defence. The lineup next season will be Curry/Klay/Wiggins/Green/Wiseman, so Lowry leading the bench unit and possibly being involved in the death lineup I can see. Wiggins for Lowry doesn't work, because Kyle Lowry will be 35 this season, 36 next season. Unless Kyle is drinking the Lebron fountain of youth, we aren't trading a 25 yr old above average wingman with great defence for a guy that will play 1, maybe 2 more seasons before his age will dramatically effect his play.
The only thing that makes sense here on our end is Oubre +/+ for Lowry, but the salaries are WAY off and we don't have the external salaries to bridge the gap.
Wiggins must be playing better than he did last year and in Minny. I never thought he would be an untouchable piece haha
Nowhere near untouchable, but the fact that he's doing well in our system gives us the right to be picky. Most fans are assuming he's just as bad, or worse, as he was in Minnesota. Hell the GB was calling him lazy as of a few days ago.. in reference to how he's played THIS season. Saying they thought he was lazy this year!
Most trade offers for Wiggins are like this:
- fan sees that W's clearly won the Wiggins trade
- fan wants his team to get a little of that winning action
- fan offers trade where Wiggins' value is the exact same as it was when we traded for him, makes it seem like its this huge favor to take him off our hands, and all it costs us is a ton of assets - and we dont get anything in return other than useless hardcap space
I dont think your offer falls under that, but it just doesn't fit what we need. Like I said - we can be picky, because he's playing well for us. We're under no pressure to move him unless it makes sense for us to do so
