Good response, dh. The trade wasn't really the reason I dropped out. I was leaning toward dropping out and that just helped me finalize my decision. I can't believe that the owner of the first pick would just give it up with no compensation, without even shopping it around to see who would offer him the best deal. I bet there are a number of owners (myself included) who would gladly have offered a higher pick in a later round in order to get the #1 pick. I like the winner to be decided by the draft and on the floor, not by who can take advantage of others in trades.
