You get more assets for a player who doesn't want to be on the Avs, and you royally screw over a divisional opponent in the process. It would be turning a bad situation into a huge win.
Matching so quickly is a nice token gesture, but it cost him.
With all due respect because you don't come around here much, this is ridiculous.
If he would have worked out some deal with Columbus they both would have been busted for obvious collusion.
Not to mention, if no one in the league knew about the waiver thing, how would he know he should wait just to hear about it.
Not to mention, I think Feaster would have had a strong leg to stand on with his interpretation of the RFA's from overseas, especially when he says they haven't even finalized the CBA, and no one has really seen it yet. Which I think is absolutely insane by the way.
How could they enforce a rule, when it's not finalized yet, or been shown to the GM's? This is all a moot issue.
