NBA Rumors: Could Raptors choose Greivis Vasquez over Kyle Lowry?


The Toronto Raptors enjoyed a fantastic 2013-2014 season.

They improved to 48-34, won the Atlantic Division and returned to the postseason, narrowly missing out on advancing to the second round in a seven-game series loss to the Brooklyn Nets.

Now the Raptors will enter an offseason with plenty of questions. Both of their point guards, starter Kyle Lowry and his backup, Greivis Vasquez, are set to become free agents.

Although most expect Lowry to re-sign with the Raptors, some think they could choose Vasquez over, a cheaper option and less of a ball dominator, over Lowry.

Jabari Davis doesn’t mind Vasquez as a starting point guard, but only if the Raptors can’t come to terms with Lowry.

All of that said, if things couldn’t be comfortably worked out with Lowry, then Vasquez is a very nice alternative to fall back onto. Full disclosure…I’m completely biased with Vasquez, as I really value bigger guards that can effectively lead an offense. If Ennis is available, then I think that is also a no-brainer for the Raptors as well. Regardless of whether it is behind Lowry or Vasquez, it would be great to see Ennis have the time and opportunity to continue developing in comfortable and familiar surroundings.

Lowry averaged 17.9 points, 7.4 assists, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game while sooting 42.3% from the field, 38.0% from beyond the arc and 81.3% from the charity stripe for the Raptors last season. Vasquez averaged 9.7 points, 4.1 assists and 2.2 rebounds while shooting 42.1% from the floor, 37.7% from beyond the arc and 88.0% from the free throw line.
