Not necessarily..The last 1st overall bust was what, 1999?

Yakopov is rated 1st overall by the large majority of scouts, media, etc. Odds that he will be a star are pretty good.

If we knew that Toronto or someone else were going to be 1st overall next year, sure, you seriously consider the deal. What's the magic beans part is no one has any idea where teams will fall next year. It changes year to year and for all we know TO could be in the playoffs next couple years.

It would be terrible if you gave up a potential star in Yak, which we already have, and end up with nothing but a top 20 pick or less...The 5th this year isn't enough to drop that low....
