First round picks have value. Getting a first back in that deal would have meant not getting some of the players we got and/or having to include more departures from our side. We wanted these guys we brought back, they'll all be starting come playoff time so it's not like we could have said keep the prospect you threw in. Getting a first back would have meant this team today would be worse off. Maybe you'd be okay with that. If that's your POV start admitting to it instead of saying, "should have got a first back," like it wouldn't have cost us anything to do so.
Actually, I've read speculation that Sather was offered our 1st pick back or Moore. He chose the ready player who can contribute right away, still on the fence about that decision. How many of you guys would rather have our 1st back instead of Moore? Tough choice. I really like his mobility and size, but he is not ready to handle more than 12-14 a night in the playoffs, we still need to groom him and teach him the system.
