Maybe I'm not understanding it properly, but I don't see an advantage at all.
There was some uncertainty about Lu's contract going forward. There were rumours about those long term deals staying on the books after the player retires, that presumably hurt his value. If that's clear now, and we are the ones on the hook, that should help alleviate those concerns.
