1) Trade up to get a higher pick... maybe Sac.
2) Trade to a team that has a proven SF:
a - G. Wallace sign and Trade. NJ doesn't have a lottery pick, and if they lose Deron, they might try to rebuild.
b - Andre Igudala, what would sixers want? They might be ready to turn to Turner as the starting SF, and get some youth, if they can't see this team compeating for a championship. Would definately need to throw in some more assests for them to take this though.
c - Nicholas Batum, this would be an excellent pickup if we could entice Portland. They may see their team as rebuilding and go for it if they think Batum is going to be too expensive in the RFA. That would mean warriors would need to match.
d - Rudy Gay. With his gigantic contract, I don't see this happening.
3) Trade down. This isn't a bad idea, trade down and pickup another pick next year. Turing one pick into 2. There are some good players in the middle of the 1st round that are appealing, like Myers Leonard, or Terence Jones.
For me, I would like to see them get Batum, Wallace or AI, but if that can't be done, trading down is not a bad idea.
Love all those ideas, though I can't see Sacramento or Portland coveting the 7th pick enough to swap assess for it.
The sign-and-trade with Brooklyn for Gerald Wallace is a winner. Get Hov on the phone!
