I just don't see a viable trade up option for us. Any of the picks where a guy worth trading up for is likely to be on the board is going to cost us more than Terry Rozier, and any pick we could get for Rozier isn't likely to help the team as much as he would next year.
Rozier will only make a difference next year if Kyrie or Jaylen gets hurt for an extended period, or if the team lets Smart go. Otherwise, it hardly matters at all. And its hard to see how we keep him or get anything out him after that.
Jaren Jackson or Wendell Carter might only play limited minutes next year too. But after that, you have a very good chance of having a quality big for the long term.
My point is that we aren't getting Jaren Jackson or Wendell Carter for Terry Rozier and future picks. This, the question is what sort of impact do you think a guy like Robert Williams would make?
I don't understand why you insist that Rozier and the Sac pick couldn't get you there. You might have to throw another pick in too, but that is a pretty good haul for a #6 or #7 pick. If I were Orlando, I'd make that deal.
The Sac pick really isn't very valuable to us unless we can turn it into a future big prospect. We just don't need anything else.
Like a parrot, I will repeat that I'd do Rozier, Sac 19 and #27 for #6. The salary balances out and to me this is contingent on several factors:
1) We don't have the minutes for all our guards, and we should resign Smart based on value.
2) While Rozier as a starter is great, Rozier playing in 15 mins off the bench isn't the same.
3) With Semi, Yabu, and likely Bird on board, we don't have room for all our upcoming picks.
4) Carter Jr compares favorably to Al when Al was 1-2 years older and should be there at #6.
5) Carter Jr should be ready to play 15-18 mins right away and has all star potential at PF/C.
If any of these 5 things aren't true, then I wouldn't want to offer so much to acquire the #6 pick. But right now, I believe these 5 things are true, so I wouldn't rule it out.
