If what management wants is a player in this draft who can be had at 7 but can't get up to 6, 5, 4, etc. with Faksa then it's a good trade.

For the record, I'm not necessarily advocating this trade I'm just wondering what his possible value might be.
hmm.. i'm not sure why it's not the same. what if, team x has a prospect that our scouts feel is equal to or better than who would be available at the 7 spot, but they never bothered to ask?
