But we really don't know how it plays out behind the scene.
Perhaps, teams would rather pay an extra $M and keep their 6th rounder?
True. Or maybe Winston wanted to stay in Houston and would have only renegotiated with a No Trade Clause. I couldn't see him taking a pay cut with the chance he'd be traded when he could just negotiate a higher contract with team(s) of his choosing.
Overall in the context this thread was constructed, I'm a Rick Smith fan and think he's done a great job improving this team.
