Default Do you trade the Number 2 pick?

If it keeps you in the top 5 and you get rid of either Brand or Iggy's contract, do you do it?

Definitely Brand. If Iggy is included, I'd imagine you are getting something decent in return since you are trading one of your top players plus moving down. So on the Iggy front I'd say "it depends". Don't we have to take back a comparable salary on either of these guys in the deal?

I think it's okay if the other team is under the cap or has a trade exception. If both teams are over the cap and no trade exception is present I believe the salaries need to be within 10%. But the NBA cap system has no logic to it.

I don't think that many teams have a ton of cap wiggle room except those posturing for LeBron, etc. To stay in the top 5, I would think it would have to be the Nets and do they really want to trade up 1 spot?

not a big NBA guy but I think you do if there is a guy you think you can go get to help. for instance, you think you can sign Bosh or a combination of guys that can help because you could still get a kid like favors, cousins or a gifted big man.

The three prospects after Wall and Turner are risky. Keep the 2.

If they can go after anyone this offseason, I want it to be Ray Allen

Haven't the Sixers had some bad recent luck with the #2 pick. Keith Van Horn and Tim Thomas were both #2 right.
