Nino is under contract and playing for the organization that owns his rights.

ROR and Turris are basically, same situation. The Turris fiasco started out as a contract dispute, and it wasn't until well into the season that the trade demands surfaced. It became clear that Phoenix was unwilling to deal him unsigned so he signed. They even dressed him for some games, but he began intentionally dogging it and sabotaging his own team, so they scratched him until they found a trade partner. The ROR situation has not got anywhere near that ugly, but the Turris situation wasn't all that ugly five games into the season, either.

The Turris dispute was about money, but more over about his role on the team. I can see a bit of that in the ROR situation.
