Trading up: Proky's advantage

I wanted to inquire on a topic that could be a big part of the Nets' future: draft-night trades.  I was wondering what the value of our later picks, the Lakers and Houston picks, and of the $3M cash that Proky will surely use in the future.  From what I have seen, $3M is about the value of a pick in the 28-35 range.  But what is the value of a 20-25 pick? How far can we trade up with a pick like that? Here are some scenarios.

Scenario #1: Nets get fourth pick, Perry Jones goes #1, and a team, say, the Cavs for argument's sake, are about to select Barnes/T. Jones with the second pick.  However, it is a known fact that the team picking third is going to take Kyrie Irving regardless.  What does it take for the Nets to trade up to #2? What would they have to add to #4, the LAL pick, and $3M?

Scenario #2: Nets get the guy they like with their own pick, say, Irving.  Someone falls farther than anticipated, someone the Nets really like. Say, Tyler Honeycutt (for no particular reason).  How far can the LAL pick, #28 right now, and $3M get us? #20? #18? What if we threw in the Houston pick next year?

Scenario #3: The Nets get the #1 pick and take Irving.  Terrence Jones falls to #6.  Do the GS, LAL, HOU picks and $3M get him? This is pretty much my dream scenario, we go out and deal Devo for an SG, say, Mayo,  and roll out a lineup of Irving/Mayo/Jones/Favors/Lopez, that is one hell of a lineup.  

Basically, I'm trying to see how much Proky's financial might can help us in the draft? Any thoughts?
