Assume the Kings get #1 and take Griffin, and the Wizards get #2 and take Rubio.
The Wizards have the pieces to win NOW. The Kings are years away from competing again..Why not do this sensible swap?
Rights to Rubio
Why for the Kings - They land both stars in this draft and add talent that matches their rosters age.
Why for the Wizards - They fill a hole in their roster with an elite talent who thrives in the secondary scoring role. They move contracts to be able to re-sign Butler/Haywood in 2010.
