Liles is a quality player, if he returns to form and looks like his old 40pt ish self we will have no trouble moving him if he is suplanted by a kid. Should the season happen and we are going to miss the playoffs I will wager he gets moved for more than the 2nd (practically a third) we gave up for him.

Until then he has a lot to offer guys like Gardiner and Rielly and is a respectable vetran presence in the dressing room. I see it as win-win either way.
