Yea, I couldn't believe it when Collison was traded. Bad move.
They just had to dump Posey's salary. Wish it could have been Peja.

Nope, they're not history - they're cutting the fat and (hopefully) about to add another impact player like Carmello Anthony...

The deal appears to have been made because it also allowed the Hornets to unload the final two years on James Posey's contract, when he was due $6.5 million and $6.9 million.

To me, that makes New Orleans' end of the deal a salary dump. If you are Paul and your team is involved in salary dumps, how could that create optimism for your team's near-term outlook?
Because they're freeing up needed money to sign another player...
