Possible Draft Trades

With all of the talk about the Cavs trading up or down, I figured I'd create a thread, and pose my opinions on it.

I think we've all either heard the rumors or have advocated for trading our #4 draft pick. The two situations that I keep hearing are

1) Trading the #4 and #24, and possibly another, for the Bobcats' #2 overall pick

2) Trading the #4 and #24, and once again, possibly one of our second rounders, to Portland for the #6 and #11 overall picks.

In scenario 1, the Cavs would probably take either Brad Beal or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. In scenario 2, they probably go with whoever is available among Barnes/Drummond/Jones III and Lamb/Zeller/Waiters.

Personally, I think that, if presented with both options, the Cavs should opt for scenario 1: we need to have another high caliber player who is able to be a contributor on a good playoff team. The Cavs can get that with Beal or Kidd-Gilchrist. However, I can see how getting two good players can be a major draw.

What this situation comes down to is whether it is worth more to draft one excellent player, a possible perennial all-star, or two very good players, guys who would be solid contributors but not necessarily all-star worthy. I'd love to hear everyone's opinions--would you go for the two top 12 picks, or the one top 2 pick? And is the price of giving up three draft picks (or two and a player on the team) worth one player?
