That said, I understand why Walt made the trade. If Marshall could stay healthy, it would actually be one of those deals that helps both teams. But with Wood taking off (and still being very young) and Marshall habitually hurt, it's looking like Theo fleeced Walt big-time on that one.
Of course this all gets back to the idea that you shouldn't base a trade based on what happens after, but what happened when it happened. No one expected Wood to be what he was and no one expected Marshall to be injured.
