i'm in the other camp. they should have made the deal.
Reinhart is a pretty darn good prospect as well. his ceiling probably isn't really that far off from Murray's. and then having like 14 (i didn't actually count) other picks in the draft? even the worst scouting staff probably would have found one or two decent players somewhere in that group. in fact since they didn't like some of their scouting staff, you might say it would have been better to give them more chances to find a good player.
