I have been a vocal FVV hater due to his physical limitations and playmaking limitations but why wouldn't FVV be with our team post 2023? He has a lot of the key qualities Nurse wants - defense, shooting, toughness, leadership. FVV fits our culture so well.
GTJ he can be traded asap - I have shifted my hater energy away from FVV to GTJ
He'll be getting paid way more on his next contract that will see him getting paid until he's 34.
Paying a 5'11 player who can't finish around the rim in his prime age who also has a history of injuries isn't a Masai thing to do.
I think when the right star is available, GTJ and FVV will be sent packing for said player.
We don't know what he will earn on his next contract. He underperformed last year compared to 2 years ago but he is still worth his current contract's AAV due to his intangibles/impact. I see FVV outperforming his current contract in terms of winning impact but not in terms of statistics/accolades, which means his next contract may not be much more in AAV than his current AAV.
You are right that his physical limitations will catch up with him when he is 32+, but that is 5 years away.
