Unless we get a significant asset in return (lottery pick or close to), I don't think we trade him. And we're not getting that for a 2 month rental.

The only scenario that has some legs is a trade for a higher paid player where jose acts as an expiring contract, besides that, he'll be a raptor until the end of his contract.
Having him just expire, then using the amnesty on a player (maybe Amir) makes sense so we can get another significant player next summer in FA ......hopefully anyway. If we're going to get anything for Jose we'll have to throw in something else (Amir, Demar, Kleiza?)
