So when they decide they want to get rid of a player they should then wait a couple of weeks just to let the idea steep? Trade offers don’t tend to get better over time, you’ve got about a 72 hour window where the real offers are made, then things dry up because nobody believes you. Meanwhile the free agency period is flying by and you need to figure out if you’ve got that salary to spend elsewhere or not. Yeah they wanted to get him, and any other player they decide to get rid of, as fast as possible, that’s called running a business.
I am not saying who is right or wrong, just what was said. I think they probably traded him right away to get Denver and fans past the talk. Americans have soundbyte memories. If the process would have lingered, the talk and frustration would have lingered. I think they also traded him as a last memory of Josh McDaniel. Erase that history from everyone’s minds and memories.
