At what level is one of these trades / signings "fine?" 

If it starts:  First few years of the contract the player performs well, team wins a buttload of games (that's an official term, by the way) and even pulls out a title
And it ends:  The team is on the hook for three to four years (long years) for huge money to a guy who can't stay on the field and no longer produces.
Take any GM in the league and tell them that signing [player x] will result in exactly one title in the next six years - no more, no less.
How many of them would have the slightest hesitation in signing that deal?

If you offer me the following sign X and you will have one title and 5 years of being Cleveland Browns level of bad and I sign the deal

There are maybe three current teams in all of American pro sports (Patriots, Warriors, maybe Penguins?) for which 5 bad years in exchange for a title is even a drawback worth thinking about.  Any other team would take that deal in a heartbeat.
