Take Courtney Lee's Cap friendly contract off that list. He's a good trade asset also.

Lee's contract is fine. Noah's is terrible and Hardaway would be overpaid but still productive.

After Cleveland, I think everyone has an equal chance.

Agreed. 0% is the same as 0%

It is a fine contract, but I'm not sure it is fair to call it an asset.

Nobody is giving up anything of note for it.

I guess I could get behind this deal (the Tim deal) if the only plan is to pump and dump him after 1.5 years or something. Just let him take 18 shots a game and average 22 a game or something. Then some dumb team wants him in an inflated market 2 years from now when the cap goes up to 108 and teams have a lot of cap space.

Not the worst thing ever if that is the plan. Given he doesn't play any defense...might help them tank like they should this year anyway.
