If Weiss can't be signed long term, they'd be best served to trade him for a assets that can grow with their young team. Theodore loves playing in Florida, so him walking is far from a forgone conclusion.

I agree with your first paragraph, but the dead cap space only comes into play if they try to shoe-horn a deal somewhere. It's a possiblity. Not a likelihood.

Fair value will be what he is traded for, I agree. Market value/perceived value is irrelevant. The only point at which he will move is when the perception aligns somewhat with what he is actually worth (only Gillis can truly know this).

Theodore will be 36. Loving to play for FLA is one thing, continually earning a contract is another.

Yes, Weiss seems to make a lot of sense, if he is on the block. Tallon will have to make that call.
