It isn't so much that I mind this deal... At all.
However, I think I would rather keep Picks 1, 4 and 8 over trading 4 and 8 for 2. There is an outside chance that Williams could fall to us at 4, anyway. If he doesn't, we more than likely will have Kanter, since all reports seem to be that Utah is taking Knight.
If we also had the No. 8 pick, we could get Alec Burks.
To me, Irving, Kanter, Burks > Irving, Williams
...and we still have a shot at Williams with No. 4.
So, give me that Rip Hamilton salary for No. 8, but forget about trading it.
Btw, Gilbert is not f#cking around. He basically bought the No. 1 pick for Baron's massive contract. Now, he is looking at doing this by spending more money. I love having an owner that isn't afraid to take on huge salaries to improve the roster.
