Oops -- "Deal probably would've been done by now if Charlotte hadn't waived center Erick Dampier"

(DA -- From the FanPosts)

Anybody notice this little tidbit in Berger's postmortem on the big (no)deal?

Ironically, one person familiar with the negotiations said the deal probably would’ve been done by now if Charlotte hadn’t waived center Erick Dampier and his non-guaranteed $13 million contract – which would’ve been a home-run for Denver in an exchange for Martin. Including Dampier in the deal would’ve provided what a source described as "ridiculous savings" for the Nuggets – about $33 million when factoring in the tax, making the deal "a no-brainer."


Salt, meet wound.
