Yeah pretty much. We can't afford to lose Cooper after giving up a first round pick for him. It's part of the problem with the concept of "he is only 24 and better than everyone in the draft." A draft pick would have 5 years before free agency. We have to get Cooper done otherwise you get a year and a half our of him for a first round pick. It's also why most teams have that contract worked out before making the trade.Being able to franchise Amari is probably the number one reason to get Dak done sooner rather than later. Aside from that I'd be perfectly fine waiting Dak out as well.
