The primary concern with Lowry is what it will cost to extend him if he lights it up next season after Jose is gone. It's always possible Lowry could try to walk in July 2014, so the Raps might have to overpay a little to get him to stay.
The good news is, Steph Curry, Ty Lawson and Jrue Holiday signed their new deals before Stern made this revenue announcement, so the cost might be lower than it otherwise could be. Had those PGs waited until this summer, they might have got huge offer sheets and set the market higher. When healthy, Lowry is probably somewhere near those guys. So if those guys had signed bigger deals, then keeping Lowry might have cost close to the max in 2014. I don't think we're going to have to offer him something that ridiculous.
