How on Earth is Portland Gonna Get Drummond and Lamb

Doing some research on the 2012 NBA DRAFT and I found out that it still might be very possible to get two top 10 draft picks in this years draft and still be able to try and sign a big name free agent like Derron Williams or maybe we still want to save money so we could make a nice offer to restricted free agent Aaron Brooks. Since it looks like management doesn't want Thabeet to play cause they don't want to know what he can do for some reason, the number one choice for us to pick with our first pick is "C" Andre Drummond. Let's face it if this guy is still on the board we need him, with him at the post playing alongside LaMarcus Aldridge and J.J. "Air Time" Hickson that's a scary combination on it's own. Not to mention the kid might possibly have another growth spurt, and at 6 foot 11 inches tall, who's idle is Dwight Howard, this guy needs to be drafted by us. Now as for how to get Jeremy Lamb when our pick is predicted to be at 11 will be a little tricky, we will have to make a trade with most likely Toronto hopefully they land the five spot. Don't get me wrong here but if you do the math Toronto might be willing to bite. If we aquire that position via trade we will be set. Lamb, a shooting gaurd who stands at a whopping 6 foot 5 inches with a wingspan of 7 feet 1 inch. He is a hard working young man and is compared to the great "Reggie Miller". He works hard on the defensive end and can get us those rebounds that we so despritly need. OK, so heres how we go about the offer to Toronto, cause by the looks of it we need to get ahead of the Kings lottery pick. So, Toronto is in the war room and what do you know Paul Allen has Chad give them a call this is the offer I feel we should make so bare with me. First we take our lottery pick and offer it up of course I don't mean the one we get from the Nets. So, we give up a lottery pick then what? (Retoracle) they say ok?, NO. We add our second round pick as well as cash considerations which is why going after Brooks instead of Derron Williams would make alot more sense. Would this be enough for Toronto to bite if we somehow manage to get the 4th spot from the Nets and Toronto manages to get the 5th spot we can possibly get 2 of the core pieces we are missing and then go sign Aaron Brooks to a contract he will most definately deserve. Of course this is all fun and games for me I mean heck a starting lineup with 2 rookies on it that's just crazy. As for the other 10 positions 5 should be on resigns and depending on if Crawford stays or goes the last 4 or 5 spots should be filled with vets willing to come off the bench, so I'm going to put a random bunch of veteran names that would be willing to do so. (1 Veteran For Each Position) 1st Team: PF LaMarcus Aldridge, SF Nicolas Batum, C Andre Drummond, SG Jeremy Lamb, PG Aaron Brooks 2nd Team: C Joel Przybilla, PF J.J. Hickson, SF Luke "baby" Babbit, SG Wesley Matthews, PG Johnny "Flyin" Flynn 3rd Team: SF Grant Hill (UFA-6.5 Mil.), C Jamaal Magloire (UFA-1.3 Mil.), PF Kurt Thomas, SG Tracy McGrady (UFA-1.3 Mil.), PG Chauncey Billups (UFA-2.0 Mil.) I would strongly prefer to sign Jermaine O'Neal over Magloire but, considering our past history with each other I doubt that we would even be on his list.
