who? who is already there and available?

Franchise talents don't get traded unless there are questions surrounding them, The guys that 'are already there' arn't available. And even if you could put together a trade that was equal in value, a team's not going to move it's franchise guy because of the risk.

Horton has some questions surrounding him, but the're rather minor (injury, good but not great production on a poor team.) He's already a good player at the age of 21, which is impressive for a big guy.

The only other franchise level talent that I could really see being available is Zherdev, and he's got a good number more questions than Horton.
