I'm inclined to agree with you, but he's a guy that's been rumored to be available for the last couple years. Until this season, he wasn't living up to being a $6 million man. He's always been a big minute eater, but there's some offensive expectations that come with that type of money. They could potentially look at this as an opportunity to sell high if they ever decided at some point this year to rebuild. I don't think he's an untouchable basically.

If they're in or almost in the playoffs ... they obviously don't move him IMO. When you start talking about looking towards the future though, I don't think it's a sure thing they hang on to him.
