Trade curiosity

Rumors continue to swirl about the Pacers being interested in trading a first rounder for Anthony Randolph. I'm not a big proponent of giving up that much for someone who's pretty much a mystery at this point, but I can see why the Pacers would be interested (enormous potential). Despite my reluctance to bring a guy like AR in, I'd admittedly most likely become one of his biggest supporters if he did indeed come to play for the Blue and Gold (dang fandom).

I'm curious, though. With the Pacers being over the cap and with them already at the roster limit of 15, doesn't that mean they'd have to give up a player and a first-round pick for Randolph? I think the Knicks are under the cap, so the teams wouldn't necessarily have to match salaries, but a player, nonetheless, would most likely need to go to New York to make the deal work (I don't think Indy wants to cut someone and absorb the cost). If that player were to be Tyler Hansbrough, or someone like Brandon Rush, do you guys still think it would be worth it to give one of them up and a 1st pick to get an unproven commodity like Randolph?,

In my mind, a first rounder is already pushing it for AR, but then you add in the fact a player would also probably need to be involved, and then it starts to get silly. It would be one thing if the Knicks were asking for a player like Solo or TJ, but I doubt those guys would be their targets. Anyway, for those who want AR, it's worth asking if a player and a first-round pick is really worth it for a guy who's done very little for all of the hype.
