That's a big "if"... we'd be talking about JV being at least equal to or perhaps better than Bosh.

I love JV, but I wouldn't feel comfortable taking that gamble. If you make the trade and get Harden you have a surefire top tier SG.... no matter what happens with JV.

If you pass on Harden and JV doesn't pan out (or simply become another Ed Davis/Amir type) you've lost BIG TIME.
