GV has to be looked at in relation to other backup PG's on the market- Shaun Livingston for one- and I'm sure there will be others. Having 2 good PG's is a must the way the game is played today. No reason we cant have KL and GV and still draft a PG for the third, and if the draftee shows he's got game, nothing to stop Masai from moving GV for other assets at the trade deadline or next off-season.
