It doesn't matter who you deal with, you aren't getting one player back that is equal to Luongo. Besides you need to separate his value as a player compared to others playing the position, to his value on the trade market. These are two different things, and value on the trade market is Supply vs. Demand. The goal will not be to get equal value back, but to find a way to address a number of needs, and improve the team. As you've identified the needs you feel are most important, than I would suggest that Liles, Lombardi/Connolly, Kadri and a second are about the maximum you will get, and collectively that might be as much as the market will give you, no matter how you value the player. It meets your needs. You aren't going to hit a home run on this, be happy improving the team.
