    I like the way Lucas plays within his role. Since the Caldy trade he's been a great backup, just like he was for the bulls after Rose went down in the regular season last year.
    In regards to getting Telfair, it's more insurance should Lowry go down with one of his niggling injuries. Besides, I remember reading somewhere signing a new guy would have put the Raps in the luxury tax, so getting a cheap contract made more sense.

    Yes but Telfair needs playing time to be a good backup because we don't want him to rust and then should Lowry get injured he will be thrust into the action and we don't want him to be rusty then.

    For the remainder of the season, does it really matter if anyone gets injured? We're not playing for anything. We could start Jonas at PG for all I care.

    Yes, but we want to get a good record on our standards still.
