For a business the star power Luongo brings to a "new" Brooklyn team cannot be overlooked.

Luongo with something to prove vs. King Henrik and the NYR would be a huge selling point.
Its the exact same amount of money being spent. Just spread out over a different amount of time. Only it works out backwards for Wang. Right now when he wants to spend as little as posible he has to spend extra but later when he move the team to a new location in a new arena and he has more money to spent that is when he will get to save.
