from what i've seen in the draft Ben King is better than anyone outside of the top 2 if the GCS get a priority pick i think we should trade pick 2 for Ben King. if we could get 19 back in exchange for our 36 as well that would be a dream result. 

it's basically Noah Anderson at pick 2 

or King or HIll and Langdon for pick 3

Am I in fantasy land or does that actually seem like a reasonable deal for all involved, in the event that Ben King definitely wants out?

There are  a number of unknown factors in all this such as whether we have to use a first round pick this year -I think based on the rules we do - I guess this isn't an unknown for the club or the AFL, but I'm still unsure.  Then there is what if any priority pick GC get and finally whether we think we a) need King or b) He is worth giving up pick 2/3 for.

I think high on GC drafting strategy this year is to try to keep top end talent tied to the club by drafting Rowell and Anderson together.  I think GC may have known it would be hard to keep King when they drafted him, but if he wanted to go home they'd be able to break even - a better risk than drafting a lesser player.  

If GC aren't given a pick at the pointy end then our hand is significantly strengthened if we are interested in getting King.  But what we are giving up is Anderson for King and we would still need another of GC later first round draft picks to come back - so expect a player/s (ANB/Stretch) or later/future picks to be involved.

Would be a remarkable scenario for gc to get 2nd draft pick as a priority and us trade our pick to them for king, giving them picks 1,2 and 3. 

If they don't think they have a chance to keep king they would trade him to us and take 1,2 and 3 surely. If they could manage (and that's a huge if) that could set them up for a decade. Assuming of course they get their club in order.

I don't know if that is what we would do though. We need a kpd but we need skilled runners who are elite kicks and decision makers even more.

yet this is an incredibly feasible scenario

we get pick 2, we hold it; we get pick 3, it is heading somewhere else

i really hope we get back into the first round somehow

This is surely no chance of happening? if the Suns lose him after 1 year it would be a disaster for them, just the optics alone, a new low, that their big key Fwd is gone after 1 year..

What would we do with Weid? surely we cant carry King and Weid? 

King would be a great coup for us but it 'aint happening.

GC want friendship and brother-ship.

So we trade T. Mac & O.Mac for their want-aways Ben King  & Jack Martin

Trade ANB & Billy Stretch for their early second round pick.

Is this how these fantasy-trading threads work?

ANB and Stretch would be worth pick 77

GWS went into the 2012 draft with 1,2 and 3 after trading in picks 2 and 3 from Melbourne and GCS in exchange for their mini-draft selections.

Shows what an unbelievable advantage they were given as a start-up compared the GCS initial concessions.  The two mini-drafts were more than excessive.

They bombed the picks though with Whitfield (tick), O'Rourke and Plowman.

The other thing is that it would appeal to the AFL i reckon, but given it would rely in the dees coming to the party might involve some shady deals.

No idea what they might be though.

Maybe something like the AFL, on the down low, tell GC that they only get pick two priority if they agree to give the dees King AND pick 7 (which i think they also have as result of previous deal?).  We get King and a top 10 pick to use on a player with kicking skills and outside run. Everybody's happy.

More like:  AFL decide to give GCS a priority pick, and ensure that King Goes to Hawthorn for 2 old chuppa chupps.

Given the make-it-up-as-you-go... er... 'spontaneous excutive authority' model of AFL management, I wonder if we could drop some hints to Gil that we would be interested in trading pick 2 as part of a deal to get King, and that way GC still gets to do their '1-2 buddy draft' without needing a start-of-draft priority pick.

Ah, yes, similar lines to what binman just posted. IT all relies on shady deals that once upon a time would have been called draft tampering but which are now 'operations management'! :D

They've got Brissy's first, so a bit higher up this year than 7. But yeah, i could see the AFL being happier to give GC a mid or end of 1st round priority pick if they knew they were going to end up with the first 2 picks anyway. Even if Brissy drop back to 4th, which will give them around pick 16/17 (after academy picks) then it still rates King around pick 9/10, so I could see everyone being happy with us giving up pick 2 for King plus 16. And GC then getting pick 20 or so as the priority.

Players are only worth what other clubs are prepared to pay.  Player rankings though a far from perfect measure (too many variables), but one that can provide a rough guide on what players might be worth, can be helpful.  Obviously one of the key constraints here is that clubs are constrained by what draft picks they have to offer.  

Currently ANB is the 158th ranked player in the league  and 14th for position (that will actually go up at the end of the year with player retirements).  Stretch is the 533rd and 123rd for position.  

Similar players traded last year (rankings are based on rd 1 2019 rankings) were:

Gary Rohan 302/40 for pick 61, 

George Horlin-Smith 453/112 for pick 59,

Jackson Thurlow 444/110 for pick 70

Sam Lloyd 402/43 for pick 64

Dean Kent 487/81 for pick 65

Taylor Duryea 379/82 for future 4th round pick.

The ball-park measure for a joint trade was Jared Polec 90/48 and Jaspar Pittard 303/64  and 3rd round pick for pick 11 and future 4th round pick.  (North in a similar position to Gold Coast in that they needed experienced AFL players to fill a need and balance their list)

So  ANB  is probably worth a third round pick and Billy is probably worth a fifth round pick.  

If we were to trade our first pick along with ANB and Stretch (both have positive cultural attributes the Suns need in terms of training and preparation and as players looking to extend their AFL careers this maybe attractive to them as well) to Gold Coast for King we could reasonably expect another  late first round pick* to come back.

* depending on what happens with their bid for a priority pick, but also what happens with Jack Martin and Peter Street remembering they also have Brisbane's first pick for this year as well.

Ben King was someone I rated extremely high last year. He's perfect prototype forward in the same vein as Tom Lynch. 

202cm tall who has played 12 games this year for 13 goals as an 18 year old.

Sam Weideman this year has played 11 games for 11 goals...

I know I was anti trade pick 2 or 3, but for this kid I would.

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo

    I can vividly remember when the Demons ventured onto Blundstone Arena for the first time in early 2016 only to lose to the Kangaroos by 20.11.131 to 21.10.136.    Melbourne was then a team on the up and up: young, enthusiastic and bold. It gave up a huge quarter time deficit after kicking against a strong wind but made that up by half time and fell dramatically short after an exciting high scoring affair.  The team lost no fans that day - they were willing to take the game on and attac

    HELP by KC rom Casey

    The Casey Demons finished off their home and away season against Frankston at Skybus Stadium on Sunday with a narrow, unconvincing 6-point victory that left the door slightly open for a top eight berth when the VFL finals begin in a fortnight’s time. While sunny skies prevailed over Frankston in the morning, the skies became overcast by noon and heavy waves pounded the bay nearby as the rains came in to greet the players as the game started. And conditions stayed dark and dreary for the rem

    SLEEP OUT AT THE MCG by The Oracle

    Around about 12 months ago Melbourne and Sydney fought out an epic battle between two top eight teams fighting for the best possible ladder position in the lead up to the finals. The Swans triumphed by 9 points at the MCG after the Demons came back from five goals down at three quarter time. But for its poor kicking for goal, Melbourne might well have won the game and finished in the top four. Who knows what might then have happened for the club in September?

But for the Melbourne supporters their retro is what it has been like for the past 10 years. Losing games, end on end, year after year.  Opportunities squandered in front of goal. VFL standard players running around at the MCG. Just more of the same, and the game against Collingwood was no ex

    The feeling when turning up to the MCG on a Saturday night to play a top four side in Richmond, while the Melbourne sits cemented in close proximity to the bottom of the table is like attending the Colosseum in Ancient Roman times. The expectation is that a bloodbath is about to occur.

    A MAN’S ERRAND by KC from Casey

    A young and undermanned Casey Demons were sent out on Saturday to the Swinburne Centre in the shadows of the MCG on a man’s errand against a very experienced Richmond VFL combination which is the clear ladder leader and fielded no less than 18 AFL listed players. It was expected to be a rout and the Tigers made easy work of it in the early stages when they held a 26 point lead by quarter time. To their credit however, the Demons weathered the storm and kept their opponents within the range
