He didn't have much value at the time. He was a risky pick up, as there was the real possibility he'd head back to Europe if he didn't make it with NJ. He has thus far clicked, so he's looking like a good pick up, but no one knew that at the time of the deal. The best we likely could have got IMO was a 4th, so a 5th seems about right.
