Raps looking to trade their 2012 draft pick?
I've heard some commentary from the organization and from people with some inside info like Jack Armstrong that it sounds like the Raps' main interest for their upcoming pick (assuming they don't bump up to #1) is to trade it for established talent.
While you can't rebuild forever, I am pretty skeptical of that being their mindframe for this pick. The Raps are terrible, and will be terrible for AT LEAST 1 more year (or possibly the next decade). So the bringing in established/veteran talent thing I think will be useless and will be that same sacrificing the future for a chance at 6-8 seed story.
If they keep a top 6 pick, they can let all the youngsters develop together and still suck enough to get a 1-3 pick the next year and maybe get our much needed point guard out of that (2013) draft (cuz a PG ain't coming out of this year's).
