Educate me, please

Just wondering if a Sign-and-Trade of Fournier would have been possible? I'm ignorant as far as the finances of the NBA go, and I'm curious as to whether we could have obtained an asset instead of just letting him walk. Thanks in advance. I was hoping we could keep him, but I understand the strategy. And if Nesmith takes a leap this year that will cushion the blow.
