Absolutely yes. The first thing he’d do is shop that pick. Doesn’t mean he’d end up trading it, but it would be his Plan A no doubt.
That would be a huge mistake. Unless the return is a top 5 player in his prime it is better to keep the pick. In all likelihood the potential of this pick will be more valuable than the return from a trade. This isn’t just about the next 2 years. You have to look at what is the best long term decision for this organization.
To be clear, I’m not advocating for it. I’m saying based on his statements and actions it’s what AK would prefer to do.
