Why do we need to have one of them on the roster next year? If the Raptors are rebuilding with a new GM (what I hope) then you're basically tanking and developing your young players.

You don't re-sign Jose Calderon in his 30's to a multi-year deal if you're rebuilding. You don't necessarily need a player in his prime on the verge of a big contract like Lowry since you won't be a good team through his best years. It all comes down to a new GM being basically allowed to punt next year. At that point, who cares who is at PG unless it's a legit long-term option? Now Lowry might still be that but it all depends on what you can get for him in a trade.
