I would think it would mean there would be no grade because there would be no draft. Cant receive a grade in a class you don’t take. rather, I think you have to grade a gm overall. Bc trades mean you acquire an older player and have to spend more money. So while you receive a better player - or at least remove/lessen risk of player bust - in the equation you also remove longevity of career and negatively impact the cap. like I said yesterday, we all love the Hudson trade. But if I told you “we are going to draft a 32 year old center in the 3rd and allocate the equivalent of the first and fourth overall picks in the draft salaries to him” how excited would we be?
