Address holes by trades to acquire cap friendly assets dealing from a position of strength. This team has a lot of important RFA's and UFA's to lock up this summer and next. Let the team grow together under a new coach and develop chemistry. That's how you win championships. Going out and getting paid mercenaries that will only be here a couple years to plug holes doesn't work. It hasn't worked in the 13 years Sather's been at the helm. He's never going to learn.
You're missing the point - he just got paid $32M by getting bought out. He likely won't demand a monster contract.
He's entering the ladder part of his career and wants to win + is close with Richards, so he may agree to sign for a minimal salary.
