I don't know the ins and outs of how trades work, but is there a slight possibility of using Peja to get a higer draft pick this year if we are positioned to be int he playoffs? Personally I wouldn't mind what we got back (as long as it isn't Patrick O'Bryant) and a higher first round pick.
The only problem I can see isthat it would have to be a bad team who would want the pick, but maybe they'd find the 14.5 million off the books good. I'm not sure.
Or are there any contenders out there who own a top 15 pick from past trades(just like Utah had last year)? Maybe they'd want Peja and would be willing to give it up.
