Maybe we could have fetched a 1st instead of a 2nd at the trade deadline

Don't get me wrong, I was never a fan of Cammalleri. There is something about his personality that rubs me the wrong way.
However, I don't understand that trade. I see three possibilities:
1- If PG thought he was making the team better and still has hopes of making the playoffs, he is delusional.
2- If this is the beginning of trading assets for picks and free cap space,
then the timing is wrong and we didn't maximize the return on that asset
3- If this is something in between, let's say just because Cammalleri didn't get along with other players and such, then that's a panic move.
If you think about it, of all the overpaid players on the team, Cammalleri was the most attractive in a possible deal. If we got a 2nd for him, it only goes down from there.
the way he was playing for us this season, his value was going down pretty much every game he was playing...
