Especially if Clarke is scoring at a .65 - .70 ppg pace, it's not like Cmac is a defensive liability either.
Anything less than a late 1st/early 2nd, and I'd rather just hold onto him and see what he's asking for in free agency.
That was an overpayment for sure, but I think what they were paying for was his character, not his scoring.
MacArthur doesn't play the same game so I think stats are much more important for him. I am not sure how much he would get in a deal, but I am guessing that most contenders have 2nd line wings who are MacArthur's equal. My guess is that it could go 2 ways, either a contender picks him up for depth/3rd line wing and gives up a 2nd or a bubble team outbids the contender and gives up a 1st. I could see it going either way.
