There is one player in the deal who has superstar abilities and he is signed for less than $13M a season for the next three years. The team that got him is the one that comes out on top.
He definitely has superstar ability, though in four years he's only had two seasons where he was a 'superstar,' so it's really difficult to know if he's going to play like one.
