Is anybody actually surprised? Does anything good ever happen to us?
In all seriousness, it seems like buyout money was the sticking issue (he would have lost $1.5 mil from Miami if he signed with us.) Still, it amazes me that Kevin Anderson wasn't aware of this ahead of time/and or prepared to compensate him for that loss. Why go through the whole process and get the fanbase excited without a knowledge of the contract situation of the guy you're trying to hire? Another black eye in the early AD tenure of Kevin Anderson.
