Okposo would fetch quite a bit at the trade deadline, assuming the Isles are outside the playoff picture, of course.
KO is 24, not 34. This season and next season, are very cheap seasons on his contract.

Whether the isles are in the playoff race or not, they have little reason to dump Okposo at the trade deadline. They would look to dump aging, soon to be ufas like 36 yr old Vis or 37 yr old Nabakov.
