That strategy annoyed me to no end, but I’m not convinced that’s why. It certainly didn’t help, but…..Cooper only fetched a 5th because the front office announced he’d be released of not traded
Were teams waiting for him to be released to get him for nothing? By trading a pick you guarantee that he plays for you. If anyone thought he was worth more than a 5th and wanted him and his contract, they would have offered it.
If Jerry handled that the way Arizona is handling this, I think the compensation would have been about the same.
I feel like this is a similar situation…..with the difference being our GM decided to tell the world and Arizonas is doing what is supposed to on the matter…shutting up.
Hopkins should be worth about a 4th, high 5th.
