Kevin Martin SG

4 1st round picks



Would be the deal if I am Magic, they need a Center back though bad

not trying to bait but how do you suck and become great later if you trade all your youth and your future picks?

on a side note.... it is obvious you guys have what Orlando wants... whether that is smart on either parties part depends on your view of the NBA...

a guess is

2 of the guys drafted this year
1 young guy from roster - probably patterson
3 #1s at a minimum (Toronto/Dallas/Houston)

Patterson could be replaced by a future pick maybe

Houston has like 5 first round picks in the next 2 years. they would be sending 2 or 3 to orlando not all of them along with a few second round picks. And lamb looks like a good player as does Parsons, Montejunas. Those are probably the pieces we will keep after the trade. We are not Trading all our youth and picks...Morey isn't dumb. He's gambling, but not without a plan in case Howard leaves.

hedu is basically an expiring with a buyout... they can flip that ***** easy...

You do realize that pic is who is following the Rockets right? Rockets don't follow Davis, just the other 4 I believe. All we can see is that the Rockets follow back Richardson, but we can't see the others. I guess it's more significant that they followed each other.

I don't think so, we have the Toronto pick next year, the Dallas' protected pick next year, and the rockets' pick in 2014

we cannot trade our pick next year, since it belongs to ATL now after the johnson trade, the pick will only be ours if don't make the playoffs

yeah... he said 5 picks... i didn't think that was right... that Dallas pick probably won't happen for awhile either...

you are gonna have to give up alot of existing assets and a minimum of the 3 picks above.

Judging from past trades where franchise players were moved not as much as people think. There's a big misconception on what an organization can get for a superstar via trade. We shall see, there's always a first.

so we can only trade the Toronto pick, the Dallas' pick and our 2015 pick
