According to Capgeek, I'm not seeing Walker counting against the cap right now, unless I'm missing something...so no point trading him, I guess.
But Nashville has been pretty vocal about only adding the "right" piece. Taking Jody Shelley would basically be doing Philly a favor. There's not even a spot in the lineup for him at this point -- if we want a goon, we'll play the younger, cheaper Zack Stortini.
I think that Philly might like what they're seeing from Couturier, and may see an easy replacement for someone like Hartnell to do so.
Isn't hartnell the last of the "old guard" buddies of Carter, Richards, Lupul, etc, anyway?
