shortcuts don't work, unless you're getting all stars, we're going to regret this.
say you have nash and igoudala for jose and davis and #8. Sure, we'll win 45 games, maybe 48. We'll definitely make the playoffs for the next 2-3 seasons and we may even win a round. And then nash will be 40 and igoudala 31 and Bargnani almost 30. We'll have few young players outside JV and virtually no tradeable assets.

On the other hand, if we get two good players from the next two drafts, we could have a core of JV, Davis, Demar and two solid young guys paired with Bargnani and possibly cap space for two max free agents in 2013 if we play our cards right (amnesty and/or trade amir and kleiza for cap relief).

Now, which situation sounds more appealing to you?
