I really don't even think it was that, because he was playing pretty well by the time they traded him. He was recovering nicely. I think it really boiled down to them wanting to stop giving him money so they could give money to someone else, who most likely wasn't as good. Or maybe they thought they could more easily replace him than the players they spent on, but obviously that didn't pan out. Cushing is very good when he's healthy, but he would be better next to Demeco instead of trying to play Demeco's spot.
