I think "franchise" players are slightly over-rated. Only slightly before people start going crazy at me! You don't HAVE to have one and Davis is not a 100% success. Of the last 10 1st round picks there's probably only 2 or 3 i would trade 3 good players for.

granted we don't know how our pick this year will turn out. I would consider this trade but not a certainty for me.
If you wouldn't trade DD, ED and our pick for AD, you're off your rocker. Every single GM in the NBA would make that deal and never look back.

To address your second point, you wold not give up our pick, DD and ED for Lebron, Dwight, Rose, Irving, Griffin, Yao, or even John Wall?
