You have a bad memory imo. Nobody wanted him? At the time he was not bad, he was a big reason they went to the finals that summer. And we outbid Portland by 2mil over 4yrs (500k per season). In other words, we weren't bidding against ourselves and another team was willing to pay him almost as much. When you say nobody wanted him, if you mean fans you're out to lunch. If you mean other teams, same thing.
