With Val coming in next season we have real potential of having a fantastic pick and roll offense. throwing Jose away for a plus 17 pick is an absolute waste and will create a void at the 1 that will not be filled easily. This draft is looking unpromising at the 1. Bird said it on the BS report two weeks ago "if you a PG hold on to him" because there isn't any thing coming do the pipes.
you make some valid points there. One trade discussed was something like reddick, filler and a pick. You get a role player and a pick.

but i do take your point. Replacing jose would be tough, we shouldn't underestimate that when thinking about possible trades. I can see you think there is no worthwhile trade, i'm interested to see what BC can turn up if a trade is considered.

maybe something involving barbosa and ed is the better way to go.
