I think it's considered "antics" when you won't waive your NTC because Mat's "didn't want to be a rental player" and " wanted to be with a team for the full year". He then waits until the season is 3 months old to be paid like one of the top 3 players in the league on a per game basis, and then use the next 30 games as you personal training camp.

Mats can still be very productive, and if he was committed to a team for the full year and would show up in shape from day 1 - is still worth big money. I just wouldn't commit to him if he can't commit to a team by the start of training camp. Anything else is a blatant "cash grab" on his part IMO.
