Just wanted to clarify something, are sign and trade only good for the player when max money is involved. Ie: the only benifit being they get more max money. Is it just them/ their new team being nice and building goodwill with a team by offering one if they offer one. EG: hedo to the raptors that wasn't a max deal. I realise that the new team and of course the old team can benifit by getting rid of a contract for a player they don't need or getting something in return in the case of the old team. But is there any benifit money wise for the player or the new team if its not a max deal. I mean can they arrange the way the contract is paid (in each year) any diferently. Don't see how this could be the case just want thinking about it. So when they are offered fo not max money is it usually just for goodwill or whatever I guess is waht I am asking.
