I don't see these trades being that cheap as people think either.
Why not? Look at how cheap we got Ladd. It's that exact same situation right now except there's more teams in that kind of trouble, further putting downward pressure on prices.
If Peverley is on the market, Chevy won't be the only GM in the mix.
Outside of a few cases you should be able to land a similar UFA for a similar salary...
Those UFAs are also older, and will command more salary and term. That's what this thread boils down to, should we strike and scoop up some of these "bargain" players, or wait until free agency and try to scoop up on average "older" players that will probably command longer term and cap hit? There's a risk either way.
One thing is for certain, this off season is going to be much more exciting than the last one. Chevy better be on the ball here.
