Yeah, the contract year thing basically makes it worse. If he plays well for the first time in years, what are you going to do, sign him to a big multi-year contract? It's probably best for both sides to move on, and if you can get a positive-value asset for him, I'd go for it now.Seconded.
Noel and a pick for Rose? I'd have to say yes.
I don't have any faith that he'll be a big performer on his new contract. Perhaps this season during his contract year.
