You think Hardy saw Michael Bennett's remarks on a "discount"?

"There isn't a team in this league," Gettleman said, "that hasn't let a big dog walk out the door."

 

I think, at the price that Hardy is gonna want, that he's a piece of the puzzle that Gettleman will decide doesn't fit.

It won't be much. Just picture yourself as the GM of a team. Would you give up a 1st or 2nd for a great player on a 1 year deal at 12 mil? I wouldn't and I don't think most teams will. Look at what dwight howard did for the lakers. They gave up high round picks/players for a 1 year deal in hopes to resign him. He left for houston after 1 year. 

 

Unless you have alot of money and you are a big favorite to win the superbowl next year there is little incentive to sign a 1 yr high priced mercenary. 

 

That's why you as the GM would accept the trade so long as the player agrees to a long term. Most GMs who do that make sure the player they are trading for agrees long before finishing the trade deal.

Yes that would be ideal but even if they agreed to a long term deal the value just isn't there. He is still not worth 1st or 2nd rounder being paid at 12 mil a year. Can you imagine if we had missed out on our 1st rounder the past 3 years? It also it helps that 1st rounders are getting screwed in pay for the first 4 years. You can only have big money on 4 or 5 players in the salary cap era if you want to win consistently. The key is finding cheap and talented guys. See seahawks

 

The peeps who are worth alot of draft picks are guys who are talented and cheap. Luke, Russel, Sherman or if you are insanely talented like Manning or Calvin johnson.

Hardy can either take a discount for a super bowl ring, or get his new rolls royce stolen in oakland as he stands in line for the soup kitchen.

If he keeps this up the Huddle should revoke his nickname.
