If the Raps bought out Dragic, it would essentially mean that the Raptors traded Lowry for Precious Achiuwa.
No, if they buy out Dragic, they give up Lowry and 19 million in cash (minus whatever Dragić decides to leave on the table) for Achiuwa. Which is worse than just renouncing Lowry and losing him for nothing as an FA.
Maybe Dragic decides to leave some money on the table so he can sign with Dallas. So it might not be $19 million. Kemba just left around $20 million on the table with his buyout.
