    Paul George or Avery Bradley or Xavier Henry or even Eric Bledsoe

    Paul George or Xavier Henry is a safe bet and non-bustable :P

      i guess in the draft you always should pick the BAP, specially if Bosh leaves and the Raps will have to go on a semi-rebuild. you can always get the players you need from signings or trades but the draft is more on potential.

        I think what this may be is mental preparation for the fans to get us out of the expectation that a center is coming to Toronto at 13. That's one theory. Colangelo has hit a bunch of home runs drafting guards and forwards so I'm fine with this if he passes on those centers.

            Its About Time

            I guess it's better late than never. I think Bryan Colangelo is trying to make amends for Bargnani. I think he's too proud to admit he made a mistake with Bargnani. And anyone who thinks he made the right choice selecting bargnani first overall is not a true raptor's fan!

              straight up we need to keep this draft pick and start building from that im tired of these "rebuilds" on the fly and at the end of the day all were left with is hedo aka sloth im tired of this... we need some young fresh blood regardless of what position he plays and personally i think we should sign collison to pg and draft the best player available at the draft

                Whoever we get at #13 is fine as long as it's not Cole Aldrich.

                  Prospects strut stuff for Raptors

                  Best player

                  Raptors director of player personnel Jim Kelly said the team will take the best player available, regardless of position.


                  “The number is probably down to about six or seven players, I can’t really say that we’ve pared down what position because I don’t think we’ll take a player by position,” Kelly said.

                  “You have to have a list, because the draft doesn’t revolve on us.”

                  Kelly said potential trades could affect the team’s thinking at 13 and also said the team has a separate group of players it likes and would consider should it add a second pick later on in the draft.

                  The veteran bird dog also cautioned against reading too much into individual workouts.

                  “You’re walking a thin line if you pick a player because he has, or didn’t have a good workout,” Kelly said.

                  “You try to build a book up on them. Look at where they were, where they are now, and where they might be in two or three years.”

                    That kind of honesty about the contract and the future is refreshing.

                      Patterson got his degree in Communications in three years so he is a pretty hard worker and presumably he can communicate?
