I saw this today.
It says that Charlotte might be looking to unload the #2 pick. I am assuming whatever move they make would include getting rid of Tyrus Thomas and his close to $27 million in salary over the next three years.
I am probably in the minority here, but I would make an offer of our pick and either Amir or Linus for #2 and Tyrus.
I really believe that selecting MKG second is worth it. I really think Casey would do wonders with a fellow Kentucky Wildcat with elite D and heart to spare.
In terms of changing the culture in Toronto we could bring in two warrior rookies next year who would be our identity moving forward. The Tyrus Thomas albatross is a steep price though. At best Casey could at least partly salvage him. At worst he stays nailed to the bench. ... admittedly a pretty big worst.
If the 'Cats would take on Amir it wouldn't kill our salary too much. Amir is owed $19.5 over the next three years as well, so the extra salary obligation only amounts to $7.5 million.
...okay... let me have it.
