Drafting some big would be the short-term move.
Exactly. Lowry is approaching the twilight of his career. If Flynn turns out to be a good player, then you have 2-3 years of overlap with Lowry to mentor him. Assuming FVV stays, then our future backcourt could potentially be FVV/Flynn for the foreseeable future.
What Masai doesn't want is a situation where your only serviceable PG ends up being FVV and no one else, and you're forced to trade or overpay for another one. In a league that's become more and more guard/perimeter oriented, you want your foundation to be rock solid before looking to add adjacent pieces like bigmen.
