Get the pick and grab Wiggins anyway.
Doesn't work like that unfortunately. It's not about just one pick. It's about asset accumulation. Getting multiple picks and/or young picks is an asset. Getting financial flexibility is also an asset. The only time financial flexibility should be hindered is when salary comes back in a deal but it comes along with a first round pick. Also - not to mention - KL expires this year. Getting picks while taking on longer salary is something this franchise hasn't done when it should have instead of having fake or extremely limited flexibility for FAs who are undesirable or don't want to come here.
