I have been trying to keep up with all the rumors in the NBA especially with Chris Paul and Dwight Howard. It is making me laugh how it seems the NBA doesnt know its own product. You have the league running the Hornets asking for so much in return for Chris Paul that it could be impossible to trade him when atleast a couple of rumored deals seem more than enough for the guard. Now you listen the the rumors for Howard and you hear of a three team trade and the talking heads are trying to spin of the value of first round draft picks. Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace to the Magic along with 2 #1 picks. I am not saying that trade isnt good the Magic would also dump a ton of salary but come on NBA teams. If you dont have lottery picks coming in return for star players with limited restrictions they are worth only so much. The NBA draft is a great event each year but if you are trading a proven All Star you need to be getting primo selections not picks in the teens and twentys.
The NBA is not the NFL when it comes to draft picks.
