How much is JJ worth in a trade?

Haven't posted in a while, so my apologies if this has been previously discussed. I'm just wondering what the Blazers can get for JJ? It seems like the target is a playoff team wanting to bolster their roster with a scoring big man. The problem with a playoff team is that their draft picks are usually not that attractive.

One thought - Oklahoma City owns Toronto's #1 pick and it is only top-3 protected. It is looking like that pick might fall in the 10-15 range. It has also been discussed that OKC could use some scoring out of its front line. Certainly Ibaka/Perkins provide the defense, rebounding and shot blocking. It seems like Hickson would be a great compliment to these two.

OKC also has two pretty good backup PG's fighting for limited time behind Westbrook. With Eric Manor in the last year of his contract, and Reggie Jackson playing well and cheaper, it seems like the Thunder have settled in on Jackson.

How about Maynor and some salary filler and the pick for Hickson? (Collison, PJones and Lamb are some other nice targets)

Adding a second pick between 10-15 sure would add some options to the Blazers' draft this summer.
