two options with $20 mill cap space, the #6 pick and some luck

First I need to say i feel that we really need to trade Luke Babbitt while his stock is relatively high after his performance from deep this year, I dont think anyone wants a rehash of a Rudy Fernandez situation... Package him and swing big in the trade market

***Option 1:
-Part 1:tradeWes Matthews, Luke Babbit, #6 pick, and the worse of our two 2nd rounders (give or take assets, id throw in a future first if boston needed more) for Rajon Rondo (cap space around 17mil remaining)
-Part 2: draft Jeremy Lamb or Austin Rivers with the #11 (whoever the blazers think higher of)
-part 3: in 2nd round draft Jae Crowder SF out of marquette with remaining 2nd rounder
-part 4: go after a big like Omer Asik at between 3-5mill a year (cap space 12-15mill remaining)
-part 5: sign Hickson at 5mill (cap space 8-10 mill remaining)
-part 6: sign Pryzbilla at 1.5mill (cap space 6.5- 8.5mill remaining)
-part 7: sign Batum at 10mill (over the cap by between 2-4mill)

Lineup:1-rondo, smith
2-lamb or river compete with williams
3-batum, crowder
4-LMA, hickson
5-Asik, Pryz

***Option 2:
-part 1: trade our #11 pick, Luke Babbitt and Shawne Williams and a future pick if needed for Tyreke Evans
-part 2: draft drummond at #6
-part 3: draft Scott Machado out of Iona and Jae Crowder in the 2nd
-part 4: sign Goran Dragic at 8mill
-part 5: sign hickson at 4mill
-part 6: sign pryzbilla at 1.5mill
-part 7: sign batum at 10 mill (puts u around 3-5mill over cap)

lineup: 1 Dragic, machado and smith
2 evans, matthews, williams
3 batum, crowder
4 LMA, hickson
5 pryz, drummond

Which do you like best? What would you change? Do you think trading for rondo is possible without throwing the kitchen sink at Boston? Do you agree about needing to trade babbitt?
