Its one thing to overpay $10mil for J Smith but throwing more money to take Hedo away from Portland was dumb. he was bad, slow and I don't think anyone wanted him.
you're right. basically every team overpays for a player to lure them away from their team. only exception is when vets want to join a contender.
