tradeable....yes, but for what. you'd have to get teams interested, and those teams have to be offering something that fills our specific needs. Let's say there are 6-7 teams legimately interested in Jose, how many of those teams have a player(s) that fit what we need? It has to be a fit for us and that may not be that easy to get and amnesty might be easier depending on FA. In other words, i'd rather amnesty Calderon
or whoever then take a questionable player with a so so or bad contract.
