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.
