This new deal is probably good for the rebuild. It gives him next year to have Triano (on his final team option year) tank hard and develop young players, trade a few older players (Bargnani, Barbosa, Jose, etc) for some picks, then draft a few good young players and hopefully a game changer in the strong 2012 draft, make a few moves in the 2012 offseason, via trade or FA (decent FA class that year), including getting a better 'winning' coach, and move into the playoffs. Playoffs would be enough to get him that team option, and with one good move in the offseason that year, he might be able to push the team up to 4th-5th in the conference, getting him a nice extension.
