I have no idea who I would draft at 10, but 10 is better than 15, so why not? NO has a bunch of picks from the Anthony Davis trade so if not the 10, then maybe something else.
Ehhh, I dont like it for 3 reasons.
1) We are not a good 3 point shooting team, and we are very inconsistent from the wing spot as Deni/Rui arent shooters at this point. Any deal moving bertans needs to keep this in mind.
2) This trade would add about 3M in salary each of the next two years. As a team right up against the tax, this seems ill advised. This financial issue is further exemplified by then having 95M dedicated to our backcourt
. Sorry, but that just isnt feasible.
3) I dont see a talent drop from 10 to 15, so the trade up doesnt really carry the weight it should. We then are hamstrung a bit as we really cant draft a guard as they would be behind Russ & Bledsoe. So it forces us to draft wing, which im not a fan of if Wagner is gone.
