Usually the case. Especially with the smaller markets. They try to sign these guys to BECOME max level players, because they know they can't draw anyone in via FAgency. But by the time these guys start getting to year 4 or so, you kinda know if they're gonna be the type that you can build around.
See Demarcus Cousins...he's baiting teams right now. But he's a guy that sorta like Zach Randolph isn't going to be a max level guy until he's about 28 years old and finally starts to get how to be a pro. Someone is going to be wasting money paying this guy the most on the team while you win nothing, unless you move him to a veteran team.
