There has been alot of talk about what the Blazers would include in a trade that would either move us up in the draft or fetch a starting PG or SF. One thing that has rarely been mentioned would be including our future 1st round picks in trade.
If we aren't looking to get any younger from here on out, wouldn't this make sense? Wouldn't including our 2009, 2010 and 2011 first rounders in trades be useful for rebuilding teams that might be looking to moving players out or drafting down?
It also seems advantageous to the Blazers situation because this will most likely be our last year in the lottery for some time. A few questions:
- How risky/possibly detrimental would trading away our first round picks be?
- How attractive would other GM's in the league see these pics?
- Wouldln't one of the currrent Blazers reguarly discussed as a trade piece (take your pick) paired with this years first round pick and a future first round pick be enough to move up in the draft?
