  • BC Looking At Using Our 1st Pick to Bring Big-Name Talent

    Is anyone really surprised that Colangelo is dangling yet another one of our draft picks?

    This is very possible. A lot depends on how much control the player's agent has over the player. Some agents have a lot of control and a deal can be worked out with the agent and player beforehand without any concern that the player might change his mind. If a player screws an agent after giving his word no agent worth his salt is going to want to work with that player in the future.

      Another pick to be wasted away in a trade that is going to keep the status quo of a sub 500 team coming right up.

        Depending on the trade, it could be a very good thing. I don't see any pontential star in the 12th 13th or 14th pick

          This isn't necessarily the wrong move (if it even happens - who knows if BC will even be able to find a willing trading partner. Yesterday I read that projected picks 10 to 35 are all projects without a lot of difference in abilities - so there may be no great interest in the Raptors pick unless we move up in the lottery). Before branding trading the pick as crazy you have to see what talent is coming back. It may be what's required to get superior talent and experience. And it's not like we're forsaking our future - the Raptors were the youngest team in the Eastern Conference this season.

            didnt the same thing happen with the O'Neal trade???

            If including that pick in a trade that will land us a tier-two player, i say go. But if we'll get a tier-3 at best, then forget about it. We have a good, young core that we can build around. But if Bosh stays, we need to start winning now. We cant afford to wait specially with Turk, Bosh, Calderon/Jack already getting old.

                  Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

                  On the face of it ho valuable can a 13th be in this draft?

                  Isnt it time we stop getting rid of our 1st rounders unless of course BC has no confidence in his ability to mine a surprise gem in the draft (say a Rondo who was picked 21 I believe) at pos. 13.

                      Or say, Steve Nash, at 15, or MIchael FInley, at 21, or even Stephen Jackson, at 42, for instance?

                        Well worth looking into.

                        Not the most promising group of prospects in that draft range.

                          Personally, I wouldn't be heartbroken if Colangelo traded the pick away. Whiteside is intriguing, but he's probably years away, and in the meantime, will get killed in the post since he's way too skinny to do anything down there. If he's available, I might take him. If not, I don't really think anyone down there has much potential to be anything but a role player, and you don't need to go in the draft to find them.

                          I think fans put WAY to much value into draft picks. Even the best teams strike out as much as they get a hit. And then, chances are the best you'll get out of a pick is a role player who will take a couple of years to learn the NBA. Meanwhile, you can find one just as good, but with more experience, elsewhere. I think fans like the IDEA of a draft pick, because it's an unknown. In their mind, it could turn out to be an All-Star player, when it's much more likely it will simply become a bench player, at best.

                            do we have a second round pick this year?

                            because they're have been so many good players in recent years in the second round.

                            guys like: ellis, ginobli, arenas, all these guys were second rounders and are all the stars of their team pretty much.

                              i hate how he constantly tardes away young pieces
                              i showhow find it easier (+ its more fun) to watch homegrown talent blossom.
                              I hate when he trades away all our picks

                              that being said it goign to happen, and we'll be saying in 2 years how it was a crappy and shitty idea
