Re: Tristan Thompson declares for the draft
I never suggested a Thompson for Ed Davis trade. I thought that Ed Davis and another piece (3rd pick) may be enough to leverage the 1st overall to snag Kyrie Irving.
I mostly am set on drafting Irivng since he fills a need and is possibly the best player in the draft. Also as someone else suggested earlier, PF prospects seem to be in high supply in current and recent drafts, so trading 1 away isn't so costly.
Then with depth at PG, either Calderon or Bayless could be traded for a mid first rounder, which could be used on Thompson.
But all of this depends on the value of the 3rd pick.
