I'm not sure what people are expecting. The only draft pick trade value we have is Don and Rudy and they would've been gone by now.
If we make no Rudy move, you have no idea how spared we will be. We would trade him and possibly be in the play-in. Not possibly fall to the play-in, but possibly be in the play-in to escape the lottery. Don would the ask out and we’d get much less return on him, while having the rest of the roster be “Don’s win-now guys.” At least if we keep everything together, we can still make the playoffs and roll the dice on a new coach and fringe moves, followed up by a better return on Donovan when he asks out because it won’t be patently obvious that we have no leverage when we’re a lottery team.
