    I didn't want to get greedy so I only chose three options

    But if I had to prioritize and pick one option, I'd choose 'Trade Bargnani'. I think he has ultimately become the Hedo of 2011. I'd want that over another lotto pick. However if we can get another lotto pick for Bargs, even better

    The Raptors need a culture change, and trading Bargnani is the way to achieve that, imho.

        Trade Bargs for a lotto pick (Sac #7?), Draft Walker and Biyombo
        Next year get a solid Sf (Barnes?)

          I really have absolutely no idea what to expect come draft night. I wouldn't be surprised to see them wheeling and dealing, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see them stick with the #5 pick.

          I don't think Bargnani gets traded on draft night though, because of his base year contract. He could, to a team under the cap, but I'm doubtful it will happen.

          If the Raptors don't draft a PG, I wouldn't be surprised to see Calderon on the roster come the start of the season, and I wouldn't have a problem with that at all. Unless they get a clearly better option, then I'd rather stick with Calderon. A better defensive system and the loss of Bargnani will make his defense a lot less of a liability.

                    1) trade calderon (get rookie PG via trade or high draft pick to develop)
                    2) Draft a SF
                    3) Get a veteran defensive C through free agency

                        So you want a rookie PG, but a veteran center. Can't make your mind up on whether you want to compete now or later?

                          LOL - Nice and so true.

                          I had about 19 but 10 was the max. I would definitely have put that in for one of the 10 had I thought of it.

                            Draft Bismack, use the tpe and get a mid to late first round pick for a PG/SG (Klay Thompson(if he falls),
                            Cory Joseph, Darius Morris, Shelvin Mack, Nolan Smith or Iman Shumpert).

                              If you consider jerryd bayless a rookie PG then sure.
