Well it was a chance we wanted to take, and for a 1st round pick at that time it didnt seem too bad. However as when Lowry gets injured you can tell how differently the team plays when he's out. The obvious scenario would be if the team plays better with out "xxx" player you may want to look at trading that piece. Plus I didnt like how he was guaranteed the starting position, and it shows that he does not want to come off the bench like it happened in Houston. One great season doesnt make you superior over others unlike Calderon who has played hard though. Ford, Jack and Lowry all hated coming off the bench and look at Calderon who always ends up outplaying them and gains the starting position again. I think Calderon is fine as a PG its just that he doesnt have much lateral quickness.
