Keenan may stand pat and burn off the year and a half Luongo is still tied to the team. However he still has to look at the contigencies of hanging onto Roberto even into January.
IMO Luongo has better value in January... if I'm a team interested, I'd be much more willing to give up more, if I could negotiate a longterm deal with him... can't do that till January... Luongo signed on a multiyear deal is worth more than Luongo a year and half from UFA status.
