I think he's the ideal backup PG because he minimizes risks (and thus turnovers) with his conservative ball handling and decision-making. I think it's best to have a bench that is not erratic. Now, I'm not saying I want my starting PG to be out of control and be a turnover machine. I want the starting PG to take some risks, to be able to break down opposing defenses, to be a playmaker for himself and others, etc.
Agreed. In an ideal world Lowry would sign with us and Jose would take a paycut and come back as our PG off the bench....

But somehow I doubt we'll get that lucky.

At least this should really help his trade value.
