Overpaying a player once is OK, as long as you learn from it.

My opinion on overpaying a player is that they’re bidding on that player so another team does not sign that player. If one team is offering $7 million and your team offers $8 million to sign him, then maybe you are overpaying him but, at the same time, you've also kept him away from a competing team. If you lose that player because you didn't want to pay the $8 million then who are you going to replace him with, a cheaper player for $2 or $3 million who may not be as good? So that's probably why some teams overpay to acquire a few players because they’re keeping them away from other teams and it would be very hard to replace that player.

Cavs Acquire Ben Wallace and Wally Alphabet for Playoff Run.

The Cleveland Cavaliers acquire Ben Wallace, Wally Szczerbiak in a trade. I think this is, as being a Cleveland Cavaliers' fan, I think this probably the best trade that the Cavs have made in many years, to help build this team, grow this team, and make it into a championship contender. Adding these players, I think this is really going to help the team, as they get into the play-offs. Lebron James has been asking for help, for a long time and then General Manager Danny Ferry has finally did something to help improve this team. So, I think this is going to really help them, as we go through the rest of the season and then get into the play-offs and they could be a contender in the Eastern Conference."
