1st - I don't think a mid range pick cracks our roster in a year, just not Gillis' style. Hodgson/Schroeder/Tanev all payed their dues in Chicago for a prolonged period.
The package needs something more, another asset like in the Nash trade.
Hodgson had a setback with his back injury, Schroeder was drafted later and was known to be a project player due to his size. Tanev was undrafted. Generally a mid round pick takes 1-2 years before cracking our roster, and in a deep draft like this, I don't think it's unreasonable.
While I would love to get a package like the Nash trade, I highly doubt we'd get that no matter how long we wait.
