    Pick Embiid as long as medicals check out. An athletic 7'1 center with skills. A nobrainer.

    Anyway, the trade doesn't make much sense to me, I don't see why Milwaukee would consider it.

    PS: one to, welcome to the board. But do use paragraphs. Remember, we are all here for fun. If your post looks like a massive legal text, most of us will run away.
    If his medicals clear, he will not be available with the second pick.

    So... in the end it's:

    Toronto in: Boozer and #2 pick (hopefully Wiggins)

    Toronto out: Novak, Salmons, picks #16, 19, 20, 37 and a future first (probably one of the 2016s) and DD.

    Novak and Salmons don't matter, but you're giving up 5 draft picks, including 4 first rounders, and DD, for a chance at Wiggins. And trading futures is what has hurt many teams.

    If he is gone, what do you do? Pick Embiid, and trade him or JV? Pick Parker, who plays no D?

    Trade for Wiggins from the Cavs, which would take maybe TRoss?

    Trade DD, a 24 year old all-star?

    No. If we get the Boozer trade, bring in the rookies. Cheap bench, which allows for more offseason splashes (KD)
    THIS (mind you, Idon't want Boozer)

    Wiggins will probably average about 18 pts per game in his rookie year imo
    Highly unlikely. How do you figure that a player of any ilk is going to average as much/more points than he did in NCAA in his 1st year? It happens, but rationality suggests 3rd year onwards is when you see these kind of numbers. A rookie scoring 14-16 points would be a big plus. Raps fans get excited when Ross scores over 10 ppg.

    It depends where he lands, who his PG is etc., but 14-16 ppg. would be an excellent start to a career.

    Wiggins would most likely everage 14ppg 5reb 1.5 steals are a rookie next season
    He's 2 years away from being 2 years away, but his wingspan is already here .

    This time of the year is the equivalent of the term "slow news day".

    At this time we have said it all about the draft. Who we want , how to trade up , who the sleepers are , how this affects free agency in multiple permutations.

    The teams have scouted their guys and have brought them in to look at them one more time.

    The 26th of June can't get here fast enough.

    The real move to Andrew Wiggins would involve multiple first rounders now and in the future (possibly unrestricted) and even then may require him to publically/privately state he does not want to play for Milwaukee (assuming Embid is #1) to force their hand. You also have to worry about the league getting involved as it will look bad on their part.

    So something like all 3 of our draft picks this year + 2015 2nd rounder + 2016 unrestricted 1st rounder + 2016 Knicks 1st rounder and maybe swapping non-core pieces for onerous contracts and/or the rights to both Vasquez and 2Pat (can swap next year's 1st rounder unprotected instead of 20th pick also). A team like Milwaukee will want controllable draft picks for the future...

    Would you want Exum SG, or let Lowry walk?
