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.
that was then and now is now, things are different
besides the fact that almost every team has some expiring contracts and/or tpes, most teams are in contraction mode, they only have two years to balance their books so to speak, until the full cba rules take effect. So not a lot of teams are looking to add salaries.

look at how many tpes are going unused, and tpes are probably more valuable than expirings.
