You think they can't afford to keep both, so they'll trade both?
Not going to happen. They wouldn't even trade Harden for the #2, much less add their best post defender.
Trade the #2 Pick to the Wizards in exchange for the #3 Pick, #32 Pick & Chris Singleton. Use the Shaun Livingston trade exception to bring in Singleton. The Bobcats would still be able to get Thomas Robinson at #3 and acquire another draft pick plus Chris Singleton who is a great defender and great athlete at the SF position. The Wizards would be insuring that they got the player they want, Beal, and that we did not trade #2 to another team.
This was the scenario I was referring to that I just posted...I thought you were talking about this one as not plausible...
rather have the cavs picks stay at 4 and still get trob. only way i talk with wash is if they take TT.
Wizards would never take on T.T. and I don't think the CAVS will give up #4 and #24 because they will get the player they want at #4...but I think the deal I proposed is fair for both teams...
The Wizards made the first big trade of the offseason, sending Rashard Lewis and the 46th pick to New Orleans for Emeka Okafor and Trevor Ariza. With the deal, the Wizards essentially upgraded their front court -- Okafor will likely be their starting 5, Nene their starting 4 and Ariza their starting 3.
With John Wall running the point, that leaves them with one big hole at the 2. I think this makes Bradley Beal a no-brainer for the Wizards, who are lacking a lights-out perimeter shooter. He's a perfect fit for this new roster.
would anybody trade pick #2 for Greg Monroe?
