Now you could look at Caldeon getting 7 mil for 4 year in Dallas and say Lowry is worth more than that, but I think Dallas over paid for sure on that deal.

Patrick Minton thinks Toronto wont be so bad!

Bargnani was no star player. He was terrible. Simply removing him from that rost makes Toronto better. Yes, Andrea Bargnani was that bad. Replacing him with an average player will make a big difference. JV is going to improve, and Tyler Hansborough will contribute. A lot depends on Lowry's health, of course. And they'd be better if Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan weren't getting heavy minutes. Maybe Masai will find a way to trade them. But they can flirt with the playoffs. In the East, this doesn't equate to being "good", but it does mean 40 wins is a real possibility.
So is Julyan Stone still coming in? his name is still being tossed around by analysts and such... little confused. Maybe its just a training camp invite?
I really don't know what Lowry has done to get 10M per. Not even 8M as far as I'm concerned. What he gets will depend entirely on his performance this year I think.
It depends on what he can do this year. If this team is a 4th or 5th seed, and if he proves that he is the effective floor general to be able to utilize JV, DD & RG, then he'll get the money he wants.
If this wasn't the last season of his contract, I do not believe he would have been working so hard this off season.
