Wasn't it even a switch? I think he's talking about 5 for GW straight up (he goes on to mention that this is cool capwise).
Still, It boils down to something like Wallace for Love or Westbrook. I'm no rocket scientist, but I'm pretty sure that that's not worth it. There's got to be a somewhat lesser commodity that we could trade. Hate to see any of these guys go, but what about Matt (whose contract decreases, something that Memphis will like) for the 5th? I don't know, would we need to throw in #9 or #20 to make it work? How about Matt and #38?
Could you imagine having picks 5, 9 and 20?

if we trade GWallace for 5, the only thing that would make this worthwhile would be to trade the 5 & 9 for the 3rd or 2nd pick (heat are interested in bayless and could nab him with the 5th pick) so we can get beasley...then use the 20 & 38 for big man and backup pg or something...
i really hope we don't trade wallace though
I welcome the chance to give up Sean May.
I'm guessing you guys wouldn't like this. I don't like this idea one bit.
EDIT: Sorry that I didn't seen this at the other thread#5 and Brian Cardinal for #9, #20, and Sean May
This is interesting to me. If you think that those five contender at #5 are of roughly equal value, then you can still get one of them at #9. Why not do so and also pick up #20, which could net Courtney Lee or some other similarly promising prospect? If you can make the upgrade — on court and on the books — of Cardinal for May as well, then all the better.
The question is: Who would Charlotte be taking at #5? The suggestion is Westbrook or Love. If it's Westbrook, then there's a good chance Love slides to #9, in which case I love this trade. If it's Love, then one of Westbrook, Gordon, or Gallinari should be there at #9.
As a back-up plan to not getting Michael Beasley, I think this could be a good trade.
That's all for now. Not sure if I'll be able to post again before the draft starts, but I hope to. Still haven't written much lately about candidates at #28 (or #20) and I'm sure there will be a lot of news and rumor breaking as the day progresses.
