Lowry, Paul, Derozen are all very likely to take the MLE to sign with a BRK, LAL or even MIL. Remember Artest in 2010? He was only 30 and took a 4/24 deal to sign with LAL when HOU offered him 3/40. You can say the same about Steve Nash in 2012 - TOR offered him 2/40 and he took a sign-and-trade to LAL for 3/24.
I can easily see Derozen taking a 2/20 to sign with his hometown love, LAL.
Derozen is 31 that's not mid 30s he's not taking mle neither is lowry and you're smoking crack if he think Paul will opt out of 45m to take 10 the scenarios you're describing never happens
