Rozy was traded because his roster spot was taken by a cheaper, younger player. He wasn't overpaid while he was a solid 3 or better D. It just made no sense to pay him $5m to play in the 5th slot when you could get an asset of greater value to the team by moving him. That's actually a better service the the player too, even if that doesn't come into the conversation when we talk about this stuff.

That he's a useful player now at a cheaper contract more relative to his current abilities has nothing to do with the circumstances of when he was dealt.
