The trade was.....
Tyler and 2nd(had top 37 protection) for ACY
Ellington for Outlaw
Why bring in Outlaw in possibility of devaluing Clearly? If Clearly is good then Outlaw is utter dead waste. So now it goes back to the above. That pick could have produced another Clearly type of prospect if we have a down year and if ACY sticks he eats up the supposed wiggle room Anthony gave back in salary for 2015. This trade was much to do about nothing.
Phil could have made the trade for ACY a while ago by taking the protection off the pick and absorbing his salary with the trade exception produced in the Dallas deal. ACY is an energy guy on a bad team, not really giving much at all. I like his motor but will not oversell this as some slam dunk move.
News leaked were trying to move bodies and Sacramento found a way to take a smidge extra when it wasn't really necessary.
