Not cheaper and I think but you picked wrong thread to make your..

..point about late firsts being worthless. The majority of Nuggets roster are late first or second rounders
Milsap, Porter, Barton, Plumlee, Joker, Morris,Craig, Grant,--none of them were picked in first half of the draft

So there definitely is some value to a late first round pick. Not a guaranteed starter picking that late, but you are getting a really good college/international player that will likley stick for at least a few years, and might turn out to be another Joker, or greek freek, or draymond, or jrue holiday, or Kawhi etc

The nuggets had to take Gerald Greens salary to make it a legal trade and all players are on last year of their deals so the $$ part is a wash
