This violates the unrealistic counter policy and this continues to be a theme with you. In the future if you don't like a proposed deal, state why or simply refrain from posting. This is not conducive and its led to more posts Mods are being asked to address. Last free warning on this. Please change your tactics.

My counter offer would be:
GS can pick the pieces around Wood coming in, but I think this would help them the most.
This is an unfortunate take and I hope you reconsider.
The trade game is a complicated one, on the forums, in discussion form, and how it occurs in real life. It is quite often that people are aghast at actual trades, whether it be how little a player returns, or how much.
We frequently hear of GMs "scoffing" at other GMs trade offers. This is because value is relative, IE its different for everyone, and implicit of fandom biases. The original proposal was one person's opinion of value, and mine was my own. Neutral observers will likely have their own. My post adds value to the discussion as it conveys what my price would be to part with a player I don't want to part with, in exchange for another player that I do not value. The conversation can evolve from there to mix and match pieces that could possibly work for both sides, or perhaps we can agree that no deal can be had.
I find your enforcement of this rule to be draconian, and counter to constructive dialogue. This is a forum, an exchange of opinion and belief. Perhaps I am just the "Danny Ainge" of posters, whose opinions of his players is too high, in which case, a simple "I think that would be a non starter" reply is appropriate.
In defense of my deal, GS, a team with huge tax issues, removes two albatross contracts off their books, who are contributing nothing, and exchanges them for three useful players, to help salvage the remainder of Steph's prime, in exchange for pick compensation. There is absolutely nothing unreasonable about that and I have no "tactics", only opinions.
