So, hypothetical situation. If you could trade for any pick in the first round of this year’s draft other than #1, and hypothetically give up less resources for each peg down, which pick number would you choose? For me, Portland are in the best position with #6, though I might be willing to say I’d rather have #5, because I don’t believe in Michael Kidd-Gilchrist or Barnes that much (and figure at least one would be taken 2-4 so I can get Drummond, Beal or Robinson). Basically, there’s Davis who is an insane #1 way above the rest of the field, and then there are 5 roughly equal guys (Barnes, Drummond, Beal, Robinson, MKG) and then a big dropoff for #7. Somewhere in the early 20s would be nice too, as there’s good value late in round 1. But who is legitimately the #7 talent in this draft pool?
Anyway, question stands, if you could trade fair assets for any non-#1 pick in this year’s first draft round, which pick do you pursue?
