    They wouldn't. But I wouldn't trade Drummond straight up for Embiid (or Parker or Wiggins) so there would have to be some sort of compensation thrown in to make it worthwhile - that was my point.

    The Cavs would end up with a guy they hope could be what Drummond has already shown and Waiters.

    So we have a 20 year old player that no one would trade for the #1 this year?

    I looked up some of the past trades, namely the Chris Webber for Penny Hardaway draft night deal. Orlando treaded #1 Webber for #3 Hardaway plus 3 future ist round picks. The picks never amounted to much. Best they got out of it was Mike Miller. They would have been better off keeping Webber.

    Looking at this draft. Embiid may have back issues and Wiggens may take a couple of years before he gets good.

    Dre would easily go #1 in the draft this year.

    With what he's shown in the pros, but not the player he was coming out of UConn...

    That's part of it, for sure... there's just no substitute for proven experience, and Drummond is only 7 months older than Embiid.
