In response to MrCricket's comment:
To Boston: To Charlotte:
F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist G Rajon Rondo
G Ben Gordon F Jeff Green
G Ramon Sessions F Brandon Bass
F Bismack Biyombo G Courtney Lee
2014 1st round pick (from Detroit) 2015 2nd round pick (from Kings)
2014 1st round pick (from Portland) 2017 2nd round pick (from Kings)
2016 1st round pick
1st round swap options in 2015 and 17
Boston would have two very young potential studs in Kidd-Gilgrist and Olynyk, several young and talented role players, loads of cap space starting in 2014, and 12 1st round picks in the next 5 drafts plus swap options in 2015 and 2017(2). DA's option's would be limitless. Boston would have the cap space and fire power to go after any superstar player that might become available via trade, while still having plenty of picks left over.
Charlotte finally has a playoff team and fans have a reason to buy tickets.
Interesting idea ... how can you not love getting 3 first round picks. We be rollin in the young guns!
We'd essentially be gifting Charlotte a starting 4 lineup. I guess with Walker, Henderson, Big Al, and Zeller they'd be a playoff team? I'd send them Crawford and Shav too.
One issue is that I don't expect MKG & Biyombo to ever be ranked higher than Rondo & Green.
Do you see how insane the 2014 draft would be? We would have four first round picks. We would have the change to possibly land Smart AND Wiggins ... OK, I'm in!
i don't expect MKG and Biyombo to become Rondo and Green either, neither are scoring threats, but they are both very talented and athletic defensivie players. it's the 3 #1 picks and swap options that make the deal for Boston.
