Both players are roughly the same age and late bloomers. Both have similar size.

Diaz for Read straight up. No one adds.
I feel like that's a pretty fair deal, but it doesn't really do anything for the Flyers. They need a true #1 defenseman, not another top-4 guy. Not saying they'll get that for Read, but at this point the Flyers need Read more than a guy like Diaz.
