I think if you're a good team that won't matter much. So the tail end of the lottery where teams are starting to think about making the playoffs next year, or some of the playoff teams that are drafting there, the age won't matter much. You're getting a rotation guy with definable skills.
Most of the younger upside guys there, like say Lavine, aren't going to be good enough to crack your good rotation anyway, and you'll just have to roll the dice when it comes time to re-up him. Your better off with the guy who can help now IMO if you're one of those teams.
