You could say the same thing about trading Nash? The CBJ couldn't score with him, then they trade their only legit goal scorer. And the CBJ are the master of switching out deck chairs. Hopefully with new leadership that is changing.
Bottom line is sometimes guys don't fit. Torts wants guys to play a certain way, and apparently Gabby didn't fit.
