SO, teams won't give up their first round pick for these guys, yet a year later will give up better and more prospects to obtain them?
And this assumes that either or both of these players will sign with a bottom feeding team like Houston, decline a no-trade clause, and allow themselves to be flipped at will.
It seem slike a great idea on paper, but rthese types of signings rarely, if ever, occur for top level players.
