All this draft talk yet no one seems to suggest trading the pick outright for a player. Who would you take back in a trade?
Personally I'd like to see that Raps approach the Spurs about Cory Joseph. The hometown kid only gets run in blowouts so his numbers are inflated, but they're still appealing. Plus there was that dunk on Ibaka

15. R. Jackson
I should really point out that the previous year's list included Beverley, Orlando Johnson, Darren Collison, and Augustin, and the year before that had Bayless and Stuckey, so it's by no means a guarantee. But the kid has talent and he's been groomed for three under the Spurs. At only 22 years old he seems worthy of a #20 pick to me. Good for both sides? Who says no? Is there anyone else you would target?
