I'm not sure we know his trade value yet. Let's say his stats remain where they are through the end of the playoffs. And let's also dream big - we make it deep into the ECF and Terry plays a major role in a few wins with big fourth quarter performances. What is it worth to get a point guard like that - who can get an efficient 19 ppg (over 60% TS), get 6.6 assists/game (vs. only 1.6 TOs), and also grab 4.8 boards/game? Did I mention he also plays solid defense and he's just 23? Obviously, small sample size. But the sample size for a draft pick is zero.
Honestly, I still lean toward keeping him. Yes, we might lose him at the end of the year, but he really improves our odds of winning the title, and that title is (a) the goal, and (b) forever. Might be worth it, especially until we know how Kyrie's knee is going to be.
But I don't think we would be asking to much if we wanted a pick in the 7-10 range in exchange for something like Rozier plus Boston's 2018 or another pick other than the 18LAL/19SAC pick. How many players chosen in that range make it to the level Terry has already reached - and shows plenty of signs he'll go higher? Not just a leader, but a leader in the playoffs. Wouldn't Orlando or Sacramento be tempted by a guy like that? If we could pay Terry, and we were just considering basketball value, I would really think hard about making the trade. This is a timing/contract play at reasonable value.
