It is not so cut-and-dried, what to do with Kyle Lowry.
Oh, it’s obvious if you listen to DeMar DeRozan, that his close friend Lowry will be returning to the Raptors.
And, it’s obvious, as Masai Ujiri is almost certain to say in his availability today, that he wants Lowry back to maintain his role as the Raptors’ leader and point guard.
That’s not really the question here. And Ujiri, if anyone, knows that much.
It isn’t: Do you want Lowry back?
It is: How far are you willing to go to keep Lowry a Raptor?
And how does that fit in to your salary cap, your payroll flexibility, your opportunity to build a contending team?
