But as we have all seen, this isn't the open market, this is the deadline. A time when if you want the asset you pay the premium for it.

What he gets on 7/1 is of no consequence to anyone except GMG right now. What he fetches in a deal now that he's available (which hasn't existed until today) is set by the trades that have already taken place. If lesser players this season are fetching high 2nd's, someone in the top 5 in scoring categories is bound to fetch more than that. Simple logic.
