    If we were to trade back, what would you want back? What are your dream scenarios?

    If we traded back and got a piece AND Duren, I'd be pretty darn happy.

    Yep. If we must, give me Dort and Duren instead of OG.

    If he’s Cronin, and he came here, reading/listening to all these posts, and still made the NOP/LAC trades, he’s more blind and deaf than Helen Keller.

    I like the idea of trading back to 9 and 25. Picking Sochan at 9 and Terry at 25... that's a realistic dream scenario if San Antonio likes who falls to us and I could see them liking any of Murray, Sharpe or Daniels... I hope they don't like them all equally because then there won't be a reason for them to trade up to us. We could trade back to Collins and 16... I don't love Collins' fit with Grant but it wouldn't be a nightmare and we could get Duren or Mark Williams if one of them fell. Get some depth. If we knew we had a sign and trade destination for Nurk we could trade back to Randle and 11 and take Duren. I don't think that Nurk would go well with Grant and Randle but Duren has the athleticism to make that whole thing work. I guess trading back to 13 and 15 and having both Duren and Sochan drop to us would be fun... Duren and Ogbaji might be cool. I guess subbing in Mark Williams for Duren in either of those combos would work too.

    Dort and 12 gives you a hell of a defensive bench with Winslow and Hart.....I don't know who you get at 12 but Dort is a pt guard stopper.

    Duren at 12. Hart, Dort, Winslow, and Duren would be real nice coming off the bench. I like that better than OG.
