Yah, Patty is already in a secondary role on the team. I just don't see him causing a problem going forward. He's got the exact right skillset for the team we should be trying to build and he has little bargaining power in a rebuild. You start trading people then sit down with Patty (who at this point should be a bit nervous) and say "Patty, we would like to keep you through this rebuild, but we need a commitment from you that you want to be here long term and do so at a price the team can afford". I suspect if you offered him a 4-5 year deal at $5m he would likely take it.

Patty is just too versatile to trade.
