It definitely still happens...

But most of the people who wind up sticking around also very much want to win. So as long as youre not bringing in a me-first type of player or getting rid of someone (like Bede) who can run the locker room you can get some buy-in for increasing the skill level of your roster.

So you have to do a lot of evaluating a fit in terms of personality when you want to bring in someone. There are a lot of kids Im sure would be a help to VT talent-wise but their personality might not fit to making the locker room move as one unit. So to your point, theres a balance to have in terms of talent vs fit.

I think Durr is a talent in situations, and (hopefully) the staff determined he would be a fit. I think it was a lot easier to make that call on Storm Murphy. And I dont think youre losing the locker room on either addition.
