Most teams' fans aren't going to go for a salary dump trade in return for assets with maybe the exception of someone like shrink (Minny fan on RGM TB) as they will always look to improve the product vs getting under a cap. I was the same in our situation...never thought Jordan would just let Felton walk, trade Chandler for (some) space nor just give Crash away.
This year I think they will add more penalties for taxpaying teams, so those not loaded (Dolan, Dr. Buss) will be even more motivated to get under.
I'd think the bigger question is would Jordan really cough up 5 million for a mid-20s pick. Hinrich would "fit" better...but we're tanking anyway.
IMO it'd most likely be Jordan killing the deal vs. ATL.
