Plus TP's played deep into the playoffs every year.

So we should at least be on the alert that signing a 28 year old TP might be like signing a 30-31 year old American college player.
I agree with the risk factors being
A) that he plays horribly and is less attractive at the trade deadline-- given the salary relief this isnt that big a deal as someone will likely take him anyway (you just wont get useful players in return)
B) He plays fantastic and you are unable to sign him.
