If Cousins slips to 5, I am inclined to take him; however, if Petrie isn't crazy about him (and I could see that very well being the case), we might be in a position to deal him and pick up another asset.
In the Dubs case, I could see them parting with someone like Brandon Wright or even Anthony Randolph if we threw another player in (and they really wanted Cousins--which might not be the case). Say Cousins and Donte Greene for Anthony Randolph and Aminu. With AR and Aminu, we would all of a sudden be pretty athletic.
With Detroit there really is no player on their roster that I am crazy about, but we could offload Noc or Garcia's contracts and move down a few spots and still get Aminu or Johnson. TIf Petrie didn't see much difference between the two, that might be making the best of a bad hand (thanks Stern).
For instance, if we are left with Aminu, Wes Johnson, Greg Monroe, et al., I might be inclined to move down and dump Noc.
What say you StR? Would you gamble a little and move down if the guy you really want isn't there (not really Petrie's style, I know, but this is end of the bar chatter)?
