i would like more than batum for DD and Ed, but i'm prob being a bit unrealistic.
I see both sides here - Batum has shown a lot more than either of DD or ED, but either or both of those two could end up being special. So I wouldn't fault either GM for saying no here. If BC is leaning towards keeping DD and ED, and Portland really wanted to get it done, if they offer Batum and a first rounder I don't know if you can say no.
