Thriller, buddy, a major reason you demand Hickson is so that you can include the bad contract of Posey or Mopete. Consider the whole post. If Posey is included, the salary leaving New Orleans goes up over $15.5 million. You need a little something to top up Ilgauskus's salary to make it work. Hickson is a cheap, young player. If you're New Orleans, it's better to take Hickson in return, rather than some other garbage player, like Moon, who is dumped in to make it work. My suggestion of including Posey, would save the Hornets over 3$ million extra this year, and over $13 million over the next to years. They would be shedding a lot of dead weight.
Yes, picks would be nice, IF they can be had. Any GM would want picks. But the crafty GMs also look for opportunities to dump shit salaries.
