For me, I think the discussion needs to happen twice....once in a vacuum where only the player abilities matter, and secondly considering ALL things like potential, contract status, age, etc. In a vacuum, Anthony is the only other SF that is more valuable to me...even though I'm probably biased against him. With ALL things considered though, I'd be tempted to go with Batum's long-term discount contract, or Kidd-Gilchrist's longterm rookie contract.
1) Lebron/Durant
2) Lebron/Durant

3) Anthony

4) Paul Pierce
5) Rudy Gay (will pass Pierce soon, if not this year)
6) Andre Iguodala
7) Luol Deng
8) Gerald Wallace
9) Danillo Galinarri
10) Nicholas Batum

HM: Shawn Marion, Danny Granger (probably #6 when healthy), Kidd-Gilchrist (future), Chandler Parsons

I didn't count Josh Smith because I consider him more of a PF and Paul George is more of a Derozan type swingman that a pure SF.
