Because it's the year before the CBA renegotiations, he has arbitration rights coming up the year after next (if there is a season), and nobdy thinks he is a big enough star to spend 5 1st round draft picks on.

Where can he play? This is an easy way the CBA could have been used by owners to keep salaries in line over the last few years. Too bad it took teams this long...
