I also think that Love and Howard are in situations where if they were dealt, their teams would be in a bit of a "sell low" situation. I don't think Bosh is really on the block, but I don't see him being the Chris Webber type of player that would cost 3 1sts.

I wonder if they would want the opposite direction and would have interest in Nene. I don't know they would want Cousins as the "face of the franchise" when they move to a new city.
The only guys I would remotely consider giving up the proposed package for would be Love, Bosh or Howard if he would resign.fishercob wrote:Like everyone else, I'm beginning to wonder about Cousins. With the move to Seattle in the offing, I wonder if the new organization decides that he's just not who they want as the face of their franchise as they make a fresh start, and trade him for a tanktastic package that will help their full rebuild.
Do you think they'd remotely consider:
Seraphin, Crawford, Booker, Vesely, Singleton, Wiz firsts in '13 and '15
Cousins, Salmons, Honeycut
Our rotation would be Wall, Beal, Webster, Nene, Cousins, Okafor, Ariza, Salmons and Price.
Okafor, Ariza and Salmons all come off the books after next year (only $1M of Salmons deal is guaranteed in the final year).
Going into next offseason, Nene and Beal would be our only 2 players under contract with Wall and Cousins up for extensions.
Holy overvaluing our own players, Batman! Let's say the Wiz buck that odds and get the #1 pick in this draft. There would be pretty hot debate over who the pick should be, essentially because there's no clear cut superstar or even star in this draft. Just for hypotheticals, let's assume it's McLemore. What do people think a sextet of McLemore, Seraphin, Booker, Crawford, Vesely and Singleton could actually win in the NBA? 10 games? 15 maybe? Our '15 first will quite likely (the good lord willing) be out of the lottery.
