Umm not really. The cap is currently 70 million. Next year when the cap drops and Edler and Burrows get raises, that's when the real pressure will be. Everyone knows that. Whether or not Luongo is traded this season is irrelevant to his value when the real crunch comes.
Don't really see how holding onto Luongo until the point he is forced to trade him improves his position. If anything, options will dissapear as next year's cap crunch approaches.
