Is It Unfair to Dwight?

Dwight’s agent is implicitly "crying foul" trying to force a quick trade for his client … what’s the premises? … Dwight has served Magic well for seven years, and doesn’t deserve to be deprived of his Bird’s rights. Nothing is further from the truth. In fact, if Dwight does not opt out of the last year on his current contract, the following scenarios apply:

1. Even if he is traded before the trade deadline of March 15, 2012 he would simply finish the current contract with the new team then sign a maximum contract with full privileges of Bird’s right. This scenario would give him the advantage of pocketing an extra $1.8M in salary.

2. If he stays with the Magic for 2012-13 season, as long as he is traded before Jan 1, 2013 he would have his Bird’s rights intact.

The only scenario that he will lose his Bird’s rights is when he is traded past Jan 1, 2012 and opts out of his contract … tough, but isn’t it the reality of this unfair world that one cannot have his cake and eat it too?
