He has a no-move clause until Jan 1st, 2014. At that point, he can submit a list of 10 teams he can't be dealt to (becomes a limited NMC).
The fact that there is language in the contract that makes his NMC into a limited NMC leads me to believe that Murray has at least entertained the idea that trading Phillips could be a possibility. If trading Phillips was going to be some non-starter for Murray, he'd have just given him the full 3 years with a NMC.
I'm not saying Phillips being traded is a guarantee; far from it. I still think it's more likely he finishes this contract in Ottawa, but for anyone to say "
it's never going to happen
": well, I submit to you that
, it could happen. The language is in his contract for a reason.
