I'm sure eventually Petry will be better, but for right now we don't need eventually and you don't need right now.

If you were looking to go deeper in the playoffs then last year, or if we were rebuilding I think this would be a nice trade, but the roles are reversed so nobody really wants to say it's a good deal.
I think this is why the poster said Petry is underrated,

He's already very good.

He was one half of a dominant shutdown pairing last year. And on top of that, during his time on that shutdown pairing he maintained a 0.5 ppg pace for the last 30 some games of the season while playing very little PP time.
