The contract doesn't help, but it's not that bad.
It will be a smaller hit if he is bought out at ~ age 39-40. Considering how much money we've wasted in cap space over the span of the last CBA, it's not too bad.
If Luongo was a UFA this summer I'd think some team would offer him 40 million over 5 years, no more. The team would have got Luongo for that deal at no other asset costs. Why would we pay 53 million plus give players, What am I missing here?
