Lou's a competitor and wont warm a bench at even age 40 for a few million. It's would cost him that ten fold to get a divorce.
Because they were clearly intended to circumvent the salary cap, and they put every team that wanted to sign a player long-term into a bind.

It's a bad contract, and Vancouver will have very little leverage after this season.
