Thanks for catching that, Ruz -- yes, I must have.
If we are getting a R2 pick next year (which would of course be much lower than the #37 this year), we'd have to give that pick.
OTOH, if we leave that out & also leave out our #37 this year, then I think that the #9 for the Celt's #s 17, 26, & 46 this year is asking a bit too much of them -- though of course we'd try for that.
Presumably they'd counter with just the #17 & #26, which seems not quite enough to get back for the #9.
Alternatively, they might agree to #17, #30 & #45 for #9 -- but (given I'm using Tankathon for this experiment) that means I don't get Tyler Bey. I want Tyler Bey! Plus,
Plus, though I didn't mention this, I would buy the #33 or #35 from Elton Brand & pick either Paul Reed or Xavier Tillman. (Because, once again, I'm using the Tankathon mock for this fantasy, I can't get either of those guys at #37).
Thus, overall, we'd have given our #9, our #37, & @$2-3m. We'd come home with Aleksej Pokuševski, Tyler Bey, either Paul Reed or Xavier Tillman, Reggie Perry & a R2 pick next year.
pg -- Wall, Napier, Smith
sg -- Beal, Tyler Bey, Garrison Mathews
sf -- Brown, Bonga, Paul Reed
pf -- Rui, Bertans, Reggie Perry
c -- Bryant, Wagner, Poku
If it's Tillman instead of Reed, move Bertans to the 3.
Your guess is as good as mine what we do with Admiral Schofield & Jerome Robinson, both of whom are guaranteed, neither of whom is even slightly tradable. But, even if we eat their salaries we are way under the tax line.
What I like about this scenario is that now we'd have a couple of good candidates to back up Beal, we have a long-term candidate to be an outstanding modern Center, & we have more young depth at forward.
What we would not have is any youth at PG. But, we'd be very solid at the position for the moment, & Smith would be a good trade candidate at the deadline.
Any of that make sense to you, Ruz?
