Trade paths and minutes

So once again like last year we will be faced with an exceedingly deep talented young squad and too few minutes to develop our younger players, if we want to get to a play-off like efficiency.  

It looks like our weakest position is point guard and we should probably attempt to trade talent to get a new starting point guard.  Assume the new point guard is of Hinrich caliber or better, since we won't really want to trade for somebody that isn't much better than blake.  I'm also assuming that this trade could go down in a lot of ways with different players going at different times(during the draft, sign and trades etc...)

Here's a couple trade options(I'm assuming Sergio is on his way out)  I'm also assuming we will be able to pick up a replacement for Channing Frye if needed: 

1. Rudy + Sergio.  

Trade value: potential borderline allstar with a rock n' roll lifestyle, plus instant Spanish/Euro fan-base.  Other teams will like the instant fan appeal of Rudy, plus the marketing potential abroad.

2. Trout + Blake + Sergio

Trade value: great offensive SF, steady backup point guard and Sergio.  If a team needs punch from the bench and to solidify there back up point guard at a low price this would be the way to go.  (Chicago might find this especially appealing)

3. Trout + Sergio + Bayless

Trade value: great offensive SF, combo guard who would still be valued like a top-five draft pick.  (If your bench is not doing anything, this could totally transform your team.)

4. do nothing- Sergio

In each of these cases it's possible to work the minutes to get to a 10 player rotation where there won't be too much grumbling.  However, the question is which is our strongest rotation, and which will give us the most trade value.
