Part 1: What's it going to take to trade up and get him? It's sounding like we'd have to trade up to the #5 spot to get him. #9 to #5. I think that our 1st rounder next year would probably be enough (hopefully we're good enough next season to not regret that). A protected 1st rounder - or a 1st rounder two or three years from now - would be better. Maybe we could pull that off? As far as being able to pull the trade off without giving up an additional 1st round pick, I don't know? Monroe and Knight certainly aren't options. Villanueva and even Gordon are probably considered negative assets due to their large contracts. Prince's contract isn't awful, but it's long, so he's probably considered a negative asset. Maxiel is overpaid for what he is, so he's probably considered a negative asset as well. Bynum, for what he produced last season, is probably considered overpaid, and thusly a negative asset as well. Stuckey might be an asset that's considered valuable? He kind of started to turn the corner this season. But he's still getting paid quite a bit. I don't know. He's not really a piece Joe-D would to part with anyways. Jerebko has some value. Good player for the money. We wouldn't want to give him up, but we would. Not sure he'd be enough to make the move though. Is there someone else we could include to make it happen? Daye has some value for sure. Just because he's still got all that potential and is so cheap. Jerebko and Daye might be enough as a package. Macklin and Singler are both tradeable, but neither has much value. ...conclusion, IMO, it's probably a future 1st round pick or a package of Jerebko, Daye, Macklin and Singler.
