The problem is, Stew still has $11 million dollars in guarantees that he has yet to receive, plus another $7 million dollars yet to hit our cap from his signing bonus. So we just flat can't cut him or we'd go from being $16 million over the cap to being $34 million over the cap.
Moving DWill on the other hand, frees up $5 million in cap space this year if we do it after June 1st, either through trade or a cut. That is going to be tempting to Gettleman.
Should we find someone willing to take on Stew's guaranteed money, then yeah, you could make a case for trading him even though he is much younger. It just seems unlikely to me that we'll find a trading partner. Bottom line, I expect DWill to be gone and Stew to be here. Not saying I like it, just it seems the more likely.
Ahh, right. Stew's deal is still relatively new, so there's still the guaranteed to be factored in. Man, that's unfortunate. Otherwise, he'd probably be able to draw some pretty decent trade value.
