Maybe he just wants to win. Or just wants to be in the playoffs. Or to play for someone other than Wilson. Or to set the table for a July signing with a team that has a good future.
Not much? Half a season right now so that is a 3 mill camp hit and he's getting paid something like 7 so you are paying him 3.5 cash and a 3 mill camp hit. At this point JSG is really in no position to pick and choose his destination after e becomes a FA. If he did get dealt I doubt if you'd be getting much coming back for a really high cap hit rental.

His value could rise if there is a bad tender injury for a contending team. In any case this is a classic case where Burke comes out and shoots the rumour down in a most truculent manner.
