Nah, you took out the positive value heading back to HOU and took away their motivation. They don't care about Wall's salary this year--they're already in full tank mode--and the extra cap space one year early for a tanking team isn't that valuable. Not valuable enough to lose Wood. You're also not just giving them expirings so they're still taking big cap hit with Horford/Richardson etc.
Horford is only half Guaranteed for next season, Dunn has already been traded (Juancho whose salary is not guaranteed could be substituted). Grant and Langford are both expiring langford actually has some decent potential, very good defender, decent handle needs to improve his J
This could be structured to save Houston about 35 million next season using partially or non guaranteed players (Horford, Juancho, Parker Langford Williams) All of those combine to less then 15 million on the books for next season, Richardson will be expiring next season for 12.....Going from 62 million owed to 27 is a savings of 35 million.
Trade machine fooled me... poor Kris Dunn is Luke Ridnour status.
