In response to Mployee8's comment:
Fungus doesn't understand that Philly doesn't need to dish out draft picks to get to the minimum team salary. Like we'd be doing them such a favor they'd reward us with a 2nd round pick ... Hahaha, see what happens when he's wrong and can't bow out gracefully?
As I started this argument by indicating that we'd have to give Philly Hump & a pick for them to take him, and Trax argued my point precisely, let's all agree that Fungus is once again wrong. Philly will not help the C's rebuild. They will take on other teams expiring contracts for picks or else look elsewhere for your dumping ground. It's that simple ....
philly already gave up a 2nd round pick for tony wroten who hasn't proven he is an NBA player, so your theory is wrong. plus, they could always trade Humphries later on in the season for equal or greater value. teams package draft picks with bad long term contracts, not expiring one's.
Things will change starting this season.
Teams over the luxury tax line or salary cap will be looking to get under it if they can, even if they have to give up a draft pick or a serviceable player to do so.
To save millions of dollars of luxury tax savings for this season, it is well worth giving up some cash and a second round draft pick or two.
Philly gave up a TBD 2nd round draft pick for Wroten. It is probably protected which means Memphis will never see it. Wroten was a 1st round pick just 1 year ago.
