Should the Blazers swap picks?

For a while now I have been riding on the Drummond/Marshall train. But I have lost faith in Drummond a little bit because I'm a little scared that he won't develop into anything or worse, that he will develop and then he'll get injured (as a Blazer fan I feel that I this is a perfectly rational fear). I don't much care for Marshall anymore either because of his lack of athleticism, lack of defense, and drafting pre-injured players obviously hasn't worked out very well for us before.

I've recently hopped on the Lillard/Leonard train. It seems that the Blazers are already very interested in these two and we have a very good shot at getting both of them. Lillard has serious potential, an insane scoring ability, and great range that will help to keep LMA from getting double and triple teamed. He can actually play defense as well. Leonard on the other hand, has legit size at the 5 and is a good rebounder/shot blocker/post scorer. They both have the potential to start for this team by next year. The only problem I see is that I don't think that drafting Lillard at 6 would be an efficient use of that pick, considering one of the big 6 in this draft would still be there for us.

So my question to you guys is:

Would you trade our 6th pick to move back to the 8th or 9th pick so that we could draft Lillard and get something extra in return?

Tell me what you would do!
