Would you trade Kyle Lowry for a draft pick?



Which is basically what we gave up for him last year. Looked like a decent deal for us especially after Lowry's good start but after a full season I'm persuaded he can't be our PG of the future and he's quite a bad fit for the Raps.
This team is stacked with non-playmaking wings (T-Ross, Fields) and inefficient ball hogs (Gay, DeMar, Alan Anderson and don't forget the Bargs...) and Lowry isn't much of a floor general either. I believe a pure PG who can run the offense would at least make things less painful to watch.
It's hard to get your franchise PG via trade or FA (esp for Toronto) so the draft could be a good chance, except for the fact we don't have a pick this year. I hear this is going to be a weak draft but you never know...
Marcus Smart is said to be the top PG prospect (haven't really seen a lot of him) and will likely be unavailable for trade. The likes of Trey Burke and Michael Carter-Williams might go late lottery/mid 1st round though, which I guess would meet Lowry's value on the market?
Of course they might not be game changers or future all-stars but they could give a new look - and some much needed hope - to the backcourt and the whole offense. MCW in particular could be a high risk/high reward pick, especially if you share my obsession for oversized pass-first PG's.
