The Hedo S+T really undermines that point. The method doesn't matter, so much as the general decision making. There is such a thing as a good free agent signing. In fact, even overpaying to a degree is fine, so long as the player you get is a positive contributor. Kapono was 1-dimensional, Hedo not even that. Fields is hard to judge until we see him play on this team.
J.O. was a trade. The issue is not free agency - it is decision-making.
