was going to say batum and 1st rounder but thought i would be ridiculed! Portland love batum don't they and adding in a 1st rounder!? Not sure por would even consider that. Yeah, i would be very tempted by that even tho i love DD. It's a good deal. Ed has good potential but is not particularly valuable to us, amir can do his job without perhaps having as much upside (but still some upside imo.)
2 first round picks this year, even one of them being around 20-30 would be lovely.
