Would you trade Beal for Gregg Popovich?

In a hypothetical world where we could trade Bradley Beal for Greg Popovich, AND guarantee that Pop would have to stick around for 5 years without quitting / retiring / throwing Ernie Grunfeld off a building, would you take that deal?

Add a couple other throw-ins to even things out;

Randy Wittman and Bradley Beal

for

Gregg Popovich and his assistant coaches and staff, with a forced-5 year contract, and Patty Mills.

Pros: We'd be putting John Wall and a handful of solid NBA starters with perhaps the best coach in the NBA. He can make Marco Belinelli and Thiago Splitter look like all-stars. He can get Danny Green and Patty Mills to buy into a system and run it to perfection. His teams - no matter the makeup - are disciplined, smart, play defense, spaced well, and always successful. Some say that it's really Duncan, Parker, and Ginobili that run the locker room and make Pop look good... but I've seen enough Spurs games where those three didn't play or didn't contribute and the team didn't miss a beat. You don't think Pop could take us to the playoffs? To the finals? With John Wall and Nene/Gortat/Ariza? We're a contender immediately. We're the new Spurs. We'd also be on TV all the time and have the best in-game interviews in basketball.

Cons: On the other hand, we'd be giving up Beal for a coach. We'd be hoping that someone can motivate Kevin Seraphin and screw his head on straight. We'd be losing half the "Dish and Swish" backcourt that is supposed to be the backbone of this team for a decade. All for a few seasons with a good coach.

Yea or nay? Why? If you say no, that means you trust Wittman and our current crew to get us to the promised land. But if you say yes, you think we can get to that promised land without Bradley Beal. I don't know.
