but a rebuilding team like Cavs do and they need young unproven athletes cause they are rebuilding.
Thats why they took walton back...
if we are not dealing any picks...whats the point of other team trading for MWP???
we will be getting equally bad contracts...nobody is going to giving us young player for an expirer MWP
