On the surface - a 26 year old, 60+ point potential guy is certainly worth keeping but on that cap hit and the lack of production, added along with the fact that we need to save some salary heading into this off-season, is Clarke not the perfect and logical choice to be traded away from this team?
Yes he is worth trading just to get rid of the cap hit. Of course he'll have a big year next season wherever he goes (contract year and all).
