The kid has never penned a professional contract. I'm not sure why people are so angry at him for wanting to find a decent situation.
It's more of him not signing with the team that drafted him and making teams woo him to their team and assurance of playing time. It's what he has done to earn those demands. It would be different if he was a veteran of several years going into his prime.

Many teams are signing players, but they don't get officially finished until free agency starts so he could have signed already.
