I guess it makes sense to include it, since they don't have a way out of the second payment because they can't trade him before July 24 of next year. Seems like something the small-market teams should be going after in the negotiations, take away that poison-pill option by changing the date the trade restriction ends (or just turning it from an outright restriction into a single-year NTC for the player.)
