Do you, in fact, understand the difference between a 'sunk cost' and a 'distressed asset'?

I'm certainly open to a new perspective on this, but I think sunk cost fits better where the Mavs stand. We are not getting value paid on this guy and the vibe to me is they aren't willing to let him go for much less. We don't need immediate influx for him so we're just sitting on it hoping he increases his value to better justify what we spent and at that point unless it's still not a great fit here, then we get much more for him.

It could be either.

The Mavs must feel they have a sunk cost dilemma because they have to decide to continue with him or try to salvage what they can. They most likely won't get the same type of return on him as they invested no matter how long they hold on to him imo. He might not become a complete sunk cost but if they have to give up assets to move him that is exactly what he'd be. This could be a much worse version of TAW if his injuries become so severe that he can't play, or worse, play and make us a worse team.

However if they feel there is high probability they can rehab him back to what he was or better, he'd be merely a distressed asset in his current state.
So you are correct that he is a distressed asset at the moment but the Mavs are certainly in a sunk cost dilemma because it appears that every injury no matter how severe is decreasing his value both on the floor and as a trade asset.

At least that is my understanding of the situation.

I posted an OPINION. Believe what you want. Luka is a winner, and he'll never have problems earning money in his NBA career. He strikes me more as a guy who wants to win and enjoy doing it. The money will take care of itself. Careers have a limited shelf-life. If one has aspirations to be an all-time great, then it is up to that individual to make sure he does the best he can to put himself in the best situation possible imo. For Luka, is that with the Mavs? I have my doubts. People seem to conveniently forget how great Luka is. The past couple of years, guys look a whole lot better for having played with Luka than had there been some other point guard on the team. The same can be said for RC and his coaching. His coaching sure looks a whole lot better when he's got a budding superstar in Luka as well as when he had prime Dirk. jmho

Do you, in fact, know the difference between asking an honest question in the interest of discussion and being a condescending ass?
