Im fine with getting Maatta. But if he was really a buy out candidate for the Hawks. How is it we only got 750k retained but not another asset?
The amount that Chicago retained on the trade was almost identical to the buyout cap hit if they would have bought him out. LA gets a player they want/need, Chicago dumps the contract they were probably going to buy out anyway, but does right by the player. There was really no incentive for the Hawks to give up an asset.
