I don't think its out of the possibility to get a first rounder + roster player for Matt Read. I think that is better than a 50 pt player for 3.5 million.
Gotta disagree there. How many 50 pt players do we have now, not counting Read? Two, maybe three? Even if 3.5 million was a slight overpayment, I think it'd be well worth it. It's great to have good prospects, but you need to have something to show in the present, as well. And "roster players" are a dime a dozen.
