LOL, well you would think that but I guess they just might not want too!
Alot of teams do it man, just want to off load for someone for someone they dont want either..........just to get a deal done.
Not really... Every deal is different. Al Jefferson's deal is a good one for Minny, because they save A LOT of money (and I'm not talking only regarding the cap) and get two first rounders to speed up their rebuilding (how they use it is another story).
Chandler's deal... it's probably done as a favor to him, as Charlotte was only interested in him as an expirer. So there's nothing wrong with trading him to a contender so he plays a role there and stays happy while the Bobcats don't add any new salaries. Sounds like the kind of deal the player's agent looked for, more than the teams.
