The Hawks cannot afford Luongo and that's all there is to it. And you're going to risk it all for one shot at the Cup this year at the expense of fielding a decent team for years to come? That's not an intelligent way to run a team in a league with a salary cap.
This. Having that contract severely limits what you can do elsewhere on the team. If he sucks, it's even worse! VC wants assets for him as well and I wouldn't even take him on for nothing. That contract is too big for too long. If they got crazy and bought him out then I would consider it but I highly doubt that happens.
