A Question For The Readers

I’ve noticed that I get a good amount of intelligent comments to my blog, so I’m going to open up the floor. This isn’t aimed at anyone, but one common thread I’ve heard in regards to the Kurt Thomas-Quentin Richardson trade (both here and on various message boards) is that the Knicks got good value considering what they gave up. My question is: is this a fair argument considering that Isiah Thomas is the one that signed Kurt to that deal in the first place? If you agree that signing a 32 year old PF to a 5 year deal when you have a legitimate young replacement waiting in the wings is a bad deal, then does that paint this trade in a different light?
