What Could've Been

The Hornets and Trailblazer have agreed to a deal in which the Blazers get the Hornets 1st round pick and the Hornets get cash considerations. The deal was done Tuesday night and the teams have scheduled a trade call with the league for this morning to make the deal official.

I really don't understand this. Why would we give away our first round pick for just cash considerations? You would think that if you were giving away your first round pick you would try to accurie a package that would make it worth your while. This really makes me mad because we could've gotten Chris Douglas-Robert out of Memphis. He would've fit perfect in Byron Scott's offense. So much for that now!
