So I know a lot of you aren’t real familiar with the players that we brought in," Ainge said. "But like I said earlier, Jae Crowder, Brandan Wright, as an example are two players that we’ve tried to acquire in the past. Thought they were under-valued players in their minutes, in their contributions so far.

Or cutting a backup because of a suspiciously consistent spike in fatigue level after 2 in the morning on road trips. In which case each player should answer a question that everyone, regardless of occupation, might soon consider for themselves: Would you be better served, economically, by your employer's knowing more or less? "They'll bring guys in and work them out and be able to see if they're at a bigger risk to hurt their knee or whatever," says Mavericks forward Brandan Wright.
