he is too good and paid too much to be a 3rd PG.

so i actually like Hoops' idea.
pick up Luke and trade Jose for a big upside player.

when TJ comes back luke takes a seat on the bench and everyone is happy. no more PG problems.
I seriously doubt that's the "only way". He's making 6.5 mill per year for 2 more. Bad but not unthinkably bad.

If they want to dump his contract, how about Garbo (only 1 more year left) + Juan?

Or a Rasho (expires next year) + Dixon deal for Ridnour and Sene or something.
