This will make the trade deadline more interesting. The Hawks can now afford any player as a rental.
Unless you count a defender playing 26 minutes a night at a PPG pace, and leading a resurgent team... Then it's definitely not "nothing lost"...

I realize this trade allowed the Hawks to manage their cap like a normal team, but writing off sacrificing Brian Campbell as "nothing lost" is pretty short-sighted. And please don't tell me 'Nick Leddy and Steve Montador have picked up the Campbell slack' it's assinine... Losing a player like Campbell for a joke of a contract like Olesz is not a good deal no matter which way you slice it.
