"Is there a precedent for a player demanding a trade with 4 years left on their contract?"
If there is, I'd like to know the outcome of that!
This could be legit worse than the Dwightmare...
Also where do people think he will end up?
He wants one of the 3 Cali teams, can't see how that happens at this point.
i dont know if it was a demand, or maybe behind the scenes. How many years were on his deal when Melo wanted to leave Denver for NY?
My memory sucks these days, but I don't think he did it publicly where it ended up on the wiretap.
This seems unprecedented, and could lead to some real ish down the road. I don't see owners handing out 150 million dollar contracts, only to have to trade that player the following year...
Then again this was so botched that I kinda get it from Ben's perspective. Kinda, I'm not a primadonna. Yet players only have so many years in the league and usually the 1st 8 are with the team that drafted you.
my memory was bad too. He wanted his full money, but wanted sign and trade. and he was public about being moved.
