I agree that performance wise there is no big rush to get him signed. However, I would want control of him asap.
I'd wager a fair amount of 'control' is already in place. Its just how it works. The money is handled via an agent and Buckley, but he's probably already spoken with Mac Jenkins about his workload and habits and they probably have some sort of program in place.
Pure assumption on my part of course, but I think its a safe assumption.

Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12

Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
