#20 and Ross for #12.
Lol just lol. Like that is just terrible for us. Doubt I'd even do Ross for #12 straight up.
No trading rookie scale guys. If you trade anything, it's veteran guys for picks. Trading rookie scale guys for picks makes no sense unless you are getting high into the early lotto.
Ross and NY first rounder for Orlando's 2014 and 2015 pick.

Why the hell would Orlando give us the 4th pick in this draft and potentially a pick just as high in next year's draft for Ross (when they have a great SG prospect in Oladipo and a very good starting SG in Afflalo) and the unknown value of the Knicks 2016 pick?
Let's not be delusional about Ross' value.
It's interesting. I think they could be interested in Amir.
But I think you need a 3rd team to take that no.20 pick and possibly other assets and give them another piece. If they are trading a mid-lottery pick in a good draft, they aren't hoping to fix one problem and win a few more games, and develop some rookie they draft at no.20. That's a power move, they want to fix multiple problems and make the playoffs. They will want this trade to give them a realistic chance to make the playoffs now.
And I don't think Amir alone puts them into playoff contention. The West is too deep, and they won only 28 games. They do have a good amount of talent but they have multiple holes. Defense, shooting, vet leadership, depth.
I think this would have to be a 3 team deal that sends them Amir plus another good piece or two.
Maybe add Orlando. I imagine Jameer and Afflalo are both available, and both would address Kings' needs. Maybe they'd give them up for the no.20 and another pick from the Kings, or some other asset. A group of I.Thomas, Afflalo, Gay, Amir, Cousins, Jameer and McLemore looks like a playoff team even out West.
as we are on the topic on trading draft pics... Who was the player you wanted to get in the 2012 draft ? And would you now use the 20th overall pick to help recieve that player ?
I understand why teams passed on him. Terrible interviews where he said he wanted to be like Durant, concerns that he might get fat or doesn't love basketball. But since I wasn't sitting in those interviews, I obviously couldn't be influenced by that stuff as much as GMs. And all those interviews and background checks are obviously very important. But in this case it looks like GMs would've been better off just ignoring all that.
