Philadelphia.... if the front office believes that either Favors, Turner, or Cousins is a potential franchise type star, then acquiring the #2 Pick is mandatory. However, Blatche has shown enough to make himself "untouchable", and should not be included to make the deal work. Every other asset should be made available, even future protected #1s.
DC is currently NOT attractive to any Max Free Agents, so if Ted believes that another franchise type player is available at #2, then taking the number two pick with Brands contract off the books in 2013 is the right move.. In three years when Wall and the 2nd pick (Favors / Cousins / Turner) are more seasoned, DC has cap room and only a year to go with Arenas. Then with a core of three good young starters (Wall/ #2 Draft Pick / Blatche) that have grown together and become more comfortable in Flip's system... DC becomes attractive to a max level free agent to complete the formula for a Championship..
