At the very least, one should ask himself why it's never been done before (it's not like it's something so outside the box no GM ever thought of that)
I'm not sure if anyone is suggesting that the value of each of these player is a first rounder. Pleks probably, if well sold. Cole and Markov we could get lucky, but they are more likely to be 2nd rounder returns. (And that in the context of a rebuild is still fine.)
