Am I missing something or have read wikipedia wrong lol... but in the J.O. trade, we traded J.O. AND a 1st round pick for Marion and Banks...
now Banks' contract is what Riley was desperate to get rid of as it goes past the 2010 free agent summer... which would have eaten up close to 5 million of their salary cap... knowing this, why did we do them a favour by taking the Marcus Banks contract AND we gave them our 1st round pick ?
did BC just get robbed ?
ironically enough, we traded for Marion to keep Bosh happy so that he wouldnt just leave,, and took the Banks contract not knowing something very important. By taking the Banks contract it allowed Miami to clear enough cap space and sign ... yup you guessed it CHRIS BOSH !!
