What would you rather have, 3 dimes or a quarter? If you are only going to have one, you want the quarter, if you want the most money you take the 3 dimes.
Flawed logic because dimes (in this case) are much more plentiful and easily obtained. An 80pt player is more than 2x valuable than a 40 pt player because there were 9 players that scored 80 or more pts last year, but 157 players who scored 40 or more. Thus, it's easier for a team to add a dime than it is a quarter. So while they may be trading away dimes, by adding the quarter they can easily add another dime and another nicked through other methods and end up having 40 cents to 30 cents for 3 players.
