Does Memphis really have these financial issues that the rumors are talking about? From what I can see they have one of the lowest payrolls for next season and all their young talent is signed cheaply for the next few seasons. They were even talking about adding payroll with the Amare Stoudemire rumor a few months ago.
I could buy a Mobley for Darko + #27 pick trade. That makes sense for both teams and I'd do that in a heartbeat since any additions of payroll for only next year have no affect on the 2010 plan.
So I say keep #8 pick and Chandler + Lee whatever it will take to move up to #2. That would be great though if Mobley's contract can be traded to add a mid-late 1st round pick.
