My opinion on overpaying a player is that they’re bidding on that player so another team does not sign that player. If one team is offering $7 million and your team offers $8 million to sign him, then maybe you are overpaying him but, at the same time, you've also kept him away from a competing team. If you lose that player because you didn't want to pay the $8 million then who are you going to replace him with, a cheaper player for $2 or $3 million who may not be as good? So that's probably why some teams overpay to acquire a few players because they’re keeping them away from other teams and it would be very hard to replace that player.

The Cleveland Cavaliers acquire Ben Wallace, Wally Szczerbiak in a trade. I think this is, as being a Cleveland Cavaliers' fan, I think this probably the best trade that the Cavs have made in many years, to help build this team, grow this team, and make it into a championship contender. Adding these players, I think this is really going to help the team, as they get into the play-offs. Lebron James has been asking for help, for a long time and then General Manager Danny Ferry has finally did something to help improve this team. So, I think this is going to really help them, as we go through the rest of the season and then get into the play-offs and they could be a contender in the Eastern Conference."
