Term means nothing in this context. Unless he is horrendously awful which is not likely at his age, $3.5 mil is still a very tradeable contract even if it is just dumping him off to a cap floor team. It's not like they're signing a 30 y.o. for $10 million where you're going to have trouble getting rid of the end of the contract.

It almost assuredly means they have to get rid of Rust, which is what I don't understand about this move. To me it leads to an assumption that Rust got comfortable and is part of the change the culture group. Who's to say that Tanev doesn't do the same?

Well, Tanev would have to be part of a cup winning team first. I feel like GMJR is a whiz at making trades, but falls flat on his face with signing free agents. I think he would have done better to re-up Petterson and Bluegar and Zack Austin Reese, than signing this guy.
