10. Deron Williams 9. Brandon Roy 8. Derrick Rose The best "Would you rather … ?" of the column. I'd rather have Rose at one-third the price of Roy or Williams, but that didn't stop me from mulling it for a few minutes. And Roy edges Williams by a hair because of his fearlessness in crunch time. While we're here, the "trade value" rankings evolved in one specific way over the past decade: Big guys used to be more valuable than perimeter guys, but now you need a creator and his position ultimately doesn't matter. He just needs to create offense for himself and/or other players. For whatever reason, we don't have any big guys who can do this consistently right now, which makes the Roy/Rose types more valuable than they once were. It's strange to see Roy/Rose/Williams ahead of Bosh/Nowitzki on this list, but that's the NBA in 2010 for you.
