in response to:
"expiring contracts are not that valuable anymore, especially when there are so many of them around"
It depends on who that expiring contract is. When the Raptors
had Mike James and he was averaging 20 plus points and was not apart of the Raptors
future plans we should have at least netted a late first round draft pick for him. The same can be said for Donyell Marshall, who at the time, was playing at a high level and garnered a lot of attention from other teams.
