Not fossilized, soon to be. If you are building, why trade valuable assets to bring in a guy who could fall off a cliff in a year or 2. If he was a 22 million expiring, maybe better, but not even then.

Allen's where he belongs anyway....surrounded by a good veteran team with good role players. I would not want to see him spend a whole year of abuse trying to carry a crap team for 40 min a game to 9th place in the east.

I just meant, continuing with youth, is there anyone out there that is kind of a known commodity that can be added at a position of need? Only for example, would a team cough up a Marc Gasol or Hibbert for Barbosa and a high lottery pick (assuming we don't win it). Then there is still money to spend in free agency, hand picked at a different position of need.
