I'm aware we can trade him at any point in the contract, but if he is playing well and doesn't give any indication he wants to leave at the end of his contract, why would MGMT trade him
Then don't put yourself in that situation as a franchise. The summer before the contract expires if it's 4+ years, you try to extend him. If he says no for whatever reason, you consider trading him.
