Ford: Flynn/Picks to Indy for Granger a possibility?

A Pacers fan asked a question in Chad Ford's chat today about Indy somehow getting a start to fit with Granger. Ford claims the only way the Pacers get a "franchise player" is by trading Granger away. Obviously, there were rumors of Jefferson for Granger last year, which Kahn vehemently denied. At the same time, nobody can deny that Granger is one of the very few young, star-quality wing players that the Wolves could acquire via trade.

Ford throws out the following scenario: No. 4 pick, No. 16 pick, and Flynn for Danny Granger. He says this is good for the Pacers, as they should acquire assets. But for the Wolves? They would almost have to keep Sessions at this point, and it doesn't solve the Jefferson/Love problem, unless one of them is still dealt for a pick (i.e. Jefferson, future picks, etc. for tne #2).

I kind of like the idea, assuming Gomes' option is declined, and we somehow still get a player in the first round this year who can help immediately. Imagine Rubio and Granger playing together, while retaining one of (or possibly both) Jefferson/Love + Milicic. We would get a star wing without giving up any players. And we all know how much Kahn values picks as "assets"....
