It's about asset management from here on out. We're not winning a championship anytime soon and Lowry can't stay healthy enough to take us anywhere. BC gambled that Lowry would have a huge year, thus cranking up his value and he lost that gamble. I'm actually glad he took that risk and was willing to peddle him at high value but it's just not worked out because of his mounting injuries.

Jose is not the longterm answer either but I do like the idea of Jose mentoring a young draftee way more than I do Lowry in that role.

Things never work out here, it's just unfortunate.... but I love Colangelo's creativity with his Lowry gamble.
