in fairness, this is not uncommon in the nba, teams do this all the time. Good players don't usually leave teams, so you have to reach for players with warts. most of the time it doesn't work, but now and again a team may get lucky. Remember when zach randolph was chaning teams every 6 months and he was considered a cancer? Look at Boston, in the past 2 years they've signed/drafted darko, JO, wallace, hollins, fab melo etc trying to find a way to plug that hole in the middle.
