Now before you say "oh Luongo has a an abusrd contract" consider this Burke will not be here in 10 years time, and by then it will be a new GM's contract problem to fix, Burke's job is to win NOW and IMO Luongo helps us do that assuming we can land him.
There's an extremely limited market for Luongo. That means Gillis isn't getting anything of significance for him. The return will be worse than what Howson got for Nash, guaranteed. No Kadri, Gardiner, Frattin, or 1st round pick. The absolute most I can see Gillis being offered from Burke is something like Bozak, Blacker and 2nd round pick. And if Gillis doesn't like it, then look elsewhere.
