Chicago could give him that time, and could live with him at that spot while he learned the ropes. That's what you can do with a team with no expectations. This is one of those trades where you had to move the guy to not impede his career and give him some opportunities. Though nobody could foresee him playing with Kane and tearing it up like he has.
Sharp also "asked" to be traded.
