When have you ever heard of a player asking to play on a 1-year or 2-year deal?  Player's get pissed off when they are franchised for one year, even when they would be making top 5 money.

The length of the deal isn't the issue.... its the amount of guaranteed $$. It benefits the team to stretch the deal out and decrease the cap hit. It would benefit the player to sign a shorter deal and become a free agent sooner.

And players get more guaranteed money when they sign longer deals.  That's the give and take in contract negotiations.

Seriously, have you ever heard of a player asking for a short deal?  And why are players upset when they are franchised for one year, with a guaranteed salary in the top 5 of their position?  Because they want the guaranteed money, which in turn yields longer team control.
