I may be wrong and please correct me if I am but as far as I know the stuff about him wanting to get out was more rumours and the actual problem was the fact he was that he found the 2 great point guard situation problematic.
And regarding Goran, I couldn't care less about the player option, any sane person would choose Goran Dragic for 4 years with a players option and for 34 million dollars than Jeremy Lin to a 3 year a la 25 million dollar deal.
And my beef is not really Goran, Lowry had the cheapest contract in the NBA compared to what he actually did on court. How hard was it to please the guy, seriously. And trading away a really good player with an extremely good contract should result more than a first round pick..
