The longer they hold onto Luongo, they're better off cap wise [and barring his performance declining drastically] to just hang onto him till he retires.
Mike Gillis put himself in a tough position now with the new CBA rules and uncertainty of cap direction in 2 years.
You do realize that with whatever team Luongo is traded to, there will be an understanding between GMs and player of exactly when Luongo _should_ officially retire correct? So as to decrease the burden on both.
Luongo will be gone at the end of the year at the very latest.
