The deadline is irrelevant though.
To start the season and consider long term commitments that Markov and Wiz would require... that means you have to assume he's on the books until the end.
If they move him at the deadline, it's likely only if the team itself has fallen into a pit or several other players have emerged, not to make room for someone else, because the cap savings at that point in the season are negligible (which is why a team would take him).
There is no chance in hell he gets moved prior to the deadline, and I'd guess not much better of one then unless the team has dove off a cliff.
