Trades for the 2nd or 3rd pick?


I like all these guys (Wiggins, Parker, Embiid) so much I decided to explore some trades for the 2nd and 3rd picks. I don't think it's likely at all but it's fun to imagine being able to get two of these guys.

1. A trade for pick #3 centered around Kyrie Irving.

I really think we may be able to get 3 and 10 from Philly for Kyrie. Philly might like the idea of using him more at the off-guard, and switching assignments with MCW on defense. This would replace some of the offense lost by trading Evan Turner, and in a more efficient way. I really like the idea of of a lengthy and athletic Waiters-Wiggins backcourt. It wouldn't be particularly good at any one thing, but it would be very versatile and exciting to watch. Some of you might object to losing Kyrie Irving, but I'm of the opinion that he's not going to be worth the max contract he will demand.

2. A trade for pick #2 centered around Dion Waiters, Sergey Karasev, and Anthony Bennett.

This would likely require the Memphis pick plus some, but the idea of a Kyrie-Wiggins-Deng-TT-Embiid lineup is extremely tantalizing.

We also need to sign a hard-nosed veteran to keep the young guys straight. I'm thinking Danny Granger would be perfect. He slots in at our biggest need, and seemed to do a good job of keeping Indiana in line.
