Can anyone explain the difference?

Between a player getting bought out (Brewer) and getting waived (Buke)?  Isn't it the same thing, just paying a guy to leave the team?  Is it just semantics depending on how long he was on your squad?  Any Larry Coon-esque types in the house?

And while I'm at it, let me say I'm not gonna get all worked up about the final spots at the end of our bench, based on talent level.  Last year we all knew Jeffries was valuable on a good team, but we weren't that.  We had so many holes to fill and JJ didn't do enough.  But now we ARE a good team, and we have specific holes to fill like defense, and JJ does that.  Troy Murphy could be nice cause of his rebounding and 3pt shot, but he plays no defense whatsoever, and we just traded all our defense for offense in the Melo trade, so we need to have priorities here.

The only thing that bothers me is waiving Brewer because of what it means to the Melo trade.  I like that we got Melo, but I just think that because Dolan was running the show and not Donnie, we gave up too much.  I've already made another post about it, so I won't ramble too much.  Just remember that Denver wanted Brewer, but instead we fought for him, and that is probably why we don't have Moz anymore.  Sure, Moz was a rookie and a project, but he was a 7-foot body we could play at center that we don't have now.  He was valuable, and fairly cheap.  No reason to give him up in a trade and Kroenke all but admitted he just went after him as a shot in the dark, and Dolan bit.  That's the only thing that bothers me here.

Otherwise, between RMJ, Balkman, Buke, Brewer, She-Will, and the rest, its a coin toss.  I see the different arguments for each one, but in the end, none of them are making a tremendous difference for this squad so let's just trust the guysin charge (NOT named Dolan)

 

But this is really about the original question.  Any answers?
