No, it's idiotic to think short-term and not stick to a plan.

Listen, if someone were to offer me a future first (in this draft or the next two) and a promising young player and maybe some cap flexibility then I think you'd have to strongly consider that because you're turning one asset into several (potential) assets and possibly adding to the core.

And, by all accounts, that's till Ujiri's thinking (or at least was).

The fact is that while Lowry has blossomed into a leader on this team, gotten into shape and really bought into team play, he's a huge question mark going into the offseason and really, there's no guarantee he'll sign.

Do I think it's likely he'll be traded? No. Would I trade him for the right package? Absolutely. Can that package occur if a team panics at the trade deadline? Yep.
