If I'm not mistaken, jack and Matt were talking about Jose and Casey having a relationship that was further developed, not in terms of any preference or quality.
And Lucas would be fine as the primary backup. He's coachable. He can do the job. There's no way the team should hold off on a deal due to needing a pg coming back.
There are already teams like Dallas that look like they could really use a guy like Jose. A deal that helps us should not be hard to envision, and that sort of opportunity doesn't come often for this team. They really need to take advantage of it. I just worry that the opportunity will be used to clear out some deadwood more than bring back the right pieces. But I could live with that too I guess.
