Yes, they did get the better player in return, and in that context they won the deal, but in terms of the big picture I'm not sure it was the best course of action available.
I'm not convinced they got the better player.
They might have got the more productive player. And that might be all they need.
But...Mags has the makings to be a strong, steady all around player.
