I don't think you deal this pick until you're on the clock. Unless you KNOW for a fact what Memphis is doing. I don't think they do. I don't think anyone does. Chris Wallace will make a decision and the change his mind at least six times between now and draft night. Ever since the Pau deal, I've heard (I think Chad Ford talked about this) he's so hesitant to make a deal that a team will think they have a deal with him, only for him to call them back 30 minutes later and say it's off.
Point being, what if Rubio is there at 5? I think Rubio is better than this package. And until you know what's going on there, I don't do this deal. I think it is too soon. (I think in time Evans will be better than this package, but that's a few years from now and the Wizards don't want to wait).
They unloaded Songaila, which is nice. They have Michelle Miller's expiring now. They still have some pieces. IF they can go out and get a legit big now, (say Amare or Shaq), then Grunfeld deserves a standing ovation. But if they don't and they 1) did this trade too soon, 2) didn't get a big out of the deal; then in my book it's a failed move on their part.
