So, we gave away a bunch of players and a first round pick to take Houston's throw-away? If Memphis was looking to deal Lowry, that's the guy we should have made the deal for. He's a taller, younger Jameer. Another tough and talented Philly guard. I just don't get this move unless its for future salary cap considerations. It does nothing to help us this year.
