Depending on the economics of the league in 3 years the Oil might be able to deal him easily by then. He'll have a cap hit of $5.5 million so any team serious about competing might shy away from him. But those that just want to make the salary cap floor may be interested simply because while he has a cap hit 5.5M in the last two years, he only earns 4M and then 2M. So a team can make the salary cap floor but pay considerably less than the cap.
