Bill Simmons proposed trade with Cetlics: Verajao for Two 2012 first round draft picks +Jermaine Oneal

Gives Cavs two extra first round picks from the Celtics in the stacked 2012 draft.

These picks are projected to be mid to later first round. (15-25 for both)

One of them is from the Clippers thy acquired in the Perkins trade and one is their own.

Jermaine Oneal is an expiring contract so the Cavs are just taking him on so the Celtics can add Verajao.

Aims:

1) Move Verajao to a playoff contending team who can use his hustle/size/youth and rebounding

2) Ensures that the Cavs get destroyed in the paint for the rest of the season and thus fall to the bottom of the conference which equals lottery pick/picks.

This sounds like tanking, but it takes the Cavs away from a middle of the road/ scraping to get to the playoffs team that will lose in the first round, to a guaranteed lottery pick.

Verajao is great, but he's not a game changer right now for the Cavs- he's a role player. He's winning the Cavs too many games and one could argue it's keep them from getting another top 3 pick in the loaded 2012 draft. (think of who they could pick).

I think this means the Cavs would have their own early pick (lottery pick), the pick from the Heat and two Celtics picks, plus their late first round pick if they drop that low.

So 5 picks in the first round of the 2012 draft.

Do you pull the trigger?

What about one of these picks+Jermaine+ a young big man from the C's instead of a second pick?
