There's already several threads for rage and fury. Here's one for rational thought. (Maybe too soon, I know.)
It's probably a given that Kahn will do all he can to get the #2 spot from Philly. Also a given that we'll have to overpay. How much is the upgrade from Cousins to Turner worth to us? Is there a scenario where Philly parts with the #2 without us giving up the #4? Do we even see value in that, assuming the Nets will prefer Favors to Cousins (I admit I'm not a huge Cousins guy)?
I don't see PHI salivating at either anyone on our roster. Maybe Rubio would interest them. And they may try to stick us with Brand's contract, which I hope we wouldn't consider. I'll throw out a few options - which seems most palatable? (or offer your own hypothetical)
A. PHI #2 for MN #4 and #16
B. PHI #2 for MN #4 and #23 and Pek
C. PHI #2 for #16 and #23 and Love
D. PHI #2 for #16 and Rubio
I'm leaning toward something like C, just because I hate the idea of giving up assets to get what we should have had in the first place (a pick two spots higher).
