My Wolves Fantasy: Granger, Turner and Cousins?

Seems like everyone is throwing out their best wild and crazy draft scenario.  I thought I'd throw my hat into the ring.


Here goes...

Trade #1
Wolves get: Danny Granger, Dahntay Jones and #10
Pacers get: Tayshaun Prince, Jonny Flynn, Pekovic and #7
Pistons get: Al Jefferson and 2nd rounder(s)

It's been discussed that Al is a bad fit with Indy, but this deal actually makes a lot of sense for the Pacers. They get a young PG, move up in the draft, land the rights to Pekovic and maintain a good veteran wing with an expiring deal. They dump Jones contract. The deal hinges on Detroit IMO and it seems that Detroit fans would are receptive as others have suggested from response on Pistons message boards.


Trade #2
Wolves get: #2 and Brand
76ers get: #10, Brewer and Hollins

This fulfills the criteria (top 10 pick, young player, and shedding Brand's deal) that the Philly rumors suggest are necessary to get #2. This trade could be announced at the draft, but couldn't be completed until after FA when we clear our FAs, renounce our exceptions, and buyout Gomes. I'm no Brewer lover.  I'm in favor of capitalizing on any positive buzz he's got from his MIP campaign and hot Jan/Feb.  Could his improved 3 pt shooting be enough to classify him as a young player in Philly's eyes?  He'd certainly work well with a more ball dominant/distributing guard like Iguodala.  Given that we're shipping out Hollins/Brewer we'd have enough cap space to resign Darko.

#2 = Evan Turner
#4 = DeMarcus Cousins
#16= Paul George
#23= Kevin Seraphin (to Europe)

Sessions, vet FA (eventually Rubio)
Turner, Ellington, Jones
Granger, George, Jones
Love, Brand
Darko, Cousins (Seraphin)
