    Default If we get the 8th pick and all our targets are gone...

    In this case, we should try to trade our pick for a legit starter. Maybe something like 8th pick + Amir Johnson for the legit starter and the second round pick of the team we trade with.

    What do you think? If you agree, who do you think we could get via such a trade?

    You came up with the thread, so you should come up with the ideas.

    Ok, then I have a couple. I have one that is not done with the exact same package than I first thought, but I think this could work. Let's work with a package of DeMar DeRozan, Amir Johnson and the 8th pick. There would be a lot of options to get back a whole new starting 2/3 crew.

    DeMar+Amir+8th pick for Danny Granger+Paul George

    DeMar+Amir+8th pick for JJ Redick+S&T Ryan Anderson
    Impossible to do this trade on the trade machine because Anderson is an upcoming free agent

    DeMar+Amir+8th pick for Arron Afflalo+Wilson Chandler
    Impossible to do this trade on the trade machine because Chandler just signed with Denver

    DeMar+Amir+8th pick for S&T Eric Gordon+Trevor Ariza
    Impossible to do this trade on the trade machine because Gordon is an upcoming free agent

    DeMar+Amir+8th pick for Wesley Matthews+S&T Nicolas Batum
    Impossible to do this trade on the trade machine because Batum is an upcoming free agent

    DeMar+Amir+8th pick for Tyreke Evans+Marcus Thornton

    Also, if one of those team would really like to do such a deal, they could include one of their picks in this draft (1st or 2nd round).

    What do you think?

    I think you have grossly overestimated the value of DD, Amir, and the 8th pick.

    I think that's putting it lightly.

    The other teams would say no in every trade.
