As far as I know, BC's contract runs through to the end of June. Triano's is not that important, although I wonder if it's also set to expire on July 1st - an important day for the NBA teams since that's when the players' contracts expire anyway.

But back to the management issues - this draft appears to be the last significant event still covered by the current CBA. Barring a miracle, the owners will lock out the players on July 1st, thus rendering the rest of your worries moot for quite a while, perhaps as long as a year. I am pretty sure MLSE has taken all this into account and so will any potential buyers.
