Smart GM's Know When to Dump Large Contracts
Webber's name will surface every time the discussion about good and/or bad trades surfaces. We dumped Webber and his huge contract at the right time. I don't look at the situation with the notion that, "We let Webber go and we have nothing to show for it." I see it as a practical and positive solution to rid the team of of an "overpaid" player. (If he were still here, he would be earning almost $2l Mil. this year and over $22 Mil. next year.)
Instead of paying Webber, we have that money to pay other players--same with Bonzi, we didn't get a player in return but we had his $8 Mil salary to spend on another player.
