I didn't know there was a situation I was supposed to keep in mind when coming up with better ways to use that pick in a trade?
I mean, either they're acquirable with that pick, or they're not. If they are (which almost all of them should be, by the way) then I've proven my point.
I didn't say there would be a better fit for a team in terms of a trade, all I said was that if we were targeting a big man with that pick, we could do far better than Leonard; I also stated that we're NOT looking for a big man, like AT ALL. We have Gortat/JO holding down center, and finding a backup if JO leaves isn't hard. Then we've got Frye who may or may not be back next season, and Scola, who's more than servicable at the 4. So, we're not trading those picks and players at positions of need for us (Brown has been our LEADING SCORER!!) for something that would simply be an unneeded commodity, it doesn't make sense, and it's not the right value for us.
Think about it this way: Portland has that pick, Gortat and JO at center and holes all along the perimeter. Would you want them to trade that pick for yet ANOTHER C while also sending out any quality you have on the perimeter? I think not.
