Re: NBA Offseason Thread 2012
...you guys aren't serious right? ZERO LEVERAGE. Maybe in two years he can demand a trade, but there is literally nothing he can do until like the third year of his contract. There is a reason it rarely(actually I don't it's EVER happened before) happens that a player asks to be traded before the last year of his contract.
Because they're idiots and need the money, if they plan it out beforehand, they won't need it. Don't spend extravegeantly as a rookie, sign an extension other teams can't offer, and then boom, sit out until you're traded. Not that hard to get an apartment vs a mansion.
