He does become valuable in his third year as an expiring as well. Additionally, I don't think he's the solution at the 3spot for us. There's still a black hole there. Pietrus was a good pick up, but he's pretty much a band-aid solution. RE mayo: I wanted to draft Drummond and pick up Mayo in the offseason (still would have), but BC decided to go with T Ross so it didn't make sense.

Nope, he can be had for something but it won't be pretty in a 1 for 1 deal (ie. Drew Gooden).
