His rookie contract was too expensive for this year and next year, so they stabilized his annual contract and back weighted it to be restructured in 5 years. It's not like they were going to let him walk, so this way they get him locked down for the foreseeable future.
If they find a way to NOT actually pay him $132M, great. If they end up having to pay it, it will bite them in the ass.
My guess is they will attempt to restructure, he'll refuse, they pay or find a way to release him. They lose either way.
