What would Christopher Columbus do?

The Spurs dealt Brent Barry, their leading 3-point shooter who hadn’t played since Jan. 24 because of a calf injury, to acquire Kurt Thomas from Seattle.
Would the Spurs have dealt a healthy Barry?
“If the world was flat, would you fly around it?” Spurs general manager R.C. Buford told the San Antonio News-Express. “Brent was playing really well early in the year. There’s been a 25-game period where we’ve missed him throughout. Had he continued to play well, would we have probably considered different circumstances? Maybe so. But I don’t know how you could say.”
Speculation is that Barry could be back in San Antonio soon anyway. The Sonics could waive him, taking advantage of his expiring contract, and then in 30 days he could re-join the Spurs.
