It's not a waste of money. You need salaries in order to trade for a player. That's how we got Sheed. We dumped a bunch of salaries. As far as hoping someone pans out, you mean like Ben Wallace or KB Toys? No disrespect to anyone, but when it comes to the business side of the NBA, there are a small handful of fans I listen to. There are only a few people who know the cap and contracts as well as I do, and even I don't feel super confident. So when you have a bunch of season ticket holders claiming a guy is worth this, or worth that, I am always taking that with a grain of salt, if not outright disregarding it. CV for $6~$6.5 to start. A steal. That's 2/3rd Tay's salary with a lot more upside.
