    How important is Lowry to this team? - VERY!

    According to Cathal Kelly at the Globe and Mail... - Cathal isn't at The Star anymore? I stopped going there once they introduced the pay wall.

    The bold is interesting - no? - Yes...in particular, "MLSE has gone so far down the road to planning a future with Lowry that, were he to leave, he would be derailing the train."
    C Kelly is one one of the main sports reporters for the globe. His first column was an opus on Dave nonissue after the Shanahan hiring. He should bring some good stuff and we can all leave that star paywall behind
    It's not just about Lowry...It's about the 3 spot.

    I think you guys are understating how much Lowry loves his team. He'll stay if Ujiri keeps the starters intact. I'm guessing 10~12M for four years. I don't think GV is gonna stay. He's gonna go hunt for a starting job and the raps won't match because it'll be for more than we can afford to pay.

    Lol!!

    Amir and Lowry are incredibly hard to replace. Amir is playing at like Ibaka level. Lowry is playing at like championship Billips level. Those are freaking hard to replace.

    Ross and JV are replaceable, but since they are likely to improve quite a bit yet it isn't wise.

    Waaait a second. You mean the guy who hasn't played in the 4th for at least of the season is more replaceable than our two best two-way players? Yes, JV is hopefully going to be very, very good, but in the context of this season he's only matched the (admittedly high) expectations in the last little bit. DD is our offensive focal point, but Lowry is an offensive talent AND a defensive force. Amir is a glue guy on offensive and the heart of our defense. Ross might be the most replacable due to being a 3&D guy, but he's still key and developing on a great salary.

    If you count out ross even though his development curve looks good, you count out JV. You count on JV's development to make him indispensable, then you count on ross's too. Either way, cmon.

    I don't think JV is easily replaceable.

    C is the hardest position to fill in the NBA.

    With his production and his age, hopefully he starts using a chauffeur service and his on court game continues to develop.
