We Want a Top 30 Player?  Who?

53

Tokito has an interesting article where he suggests we are positioning ourselves well for a lopsided trade (where we can take much more money back than we send out), dangling the Net's pick as incentive to try to land an all-star type player to pair with L.A. (This is an acknowledgement of the difficulty of getting top notch talent to come straight up in free agency.) The criteria we are looking for is: 1. All-star caliber ("a top 30" player) 2. Around L.A.'s age or a little older (but not at end of career) 3. A backcourt player (a 1 or a 2) I can't think of who would qualify. Kevin Martin and James Harden are top 30, young and backcourt players but don't seem "all-star caliber." The only person who might is Melo whose stock has fallen considerably in NYC. Any other thoughts on who we might target or whether we would be better chancing it in the draft and keeping the pick?
