Happy Thursday, 'Nova Nation! Let's play a fun game that NBC's Rob Dauster kicked around in the article below. If you could make a trade to help our Villanova Wildcats, who would it be? Dauster suggests we trade Tim Delaney for Oklahoma's Khadeem Lattin. That'd be a slam dunk, obviously. But I also don't think that makes a lick of sense for Oklahoma since Lattin is (1) proven and (2) has eligibility remaining.
Given Villanova's depth issues, I think we're talking 2-1 trade. And I love me some Phil Booth, but dangling him to a team like Duke who needs a guard that can facilitate an offense (they still have no PG for next year) and has assets to spare makes a lot of sense. Booth for Marques Bolden and Jack White?
