10% chance of moving up, less than 3% of giving this franchise a needed lift.
Stay at #8 and maybe this pick becomes a tradeable commodity which can be used to complement/supplement the youth, or perception of said youth. Go Top 3 and the SF situation is fixed, and go #1 to say bye to Bargnani.
I’d say picking at #8 is a mistake, given how long it takes for us to develop players.
My prediction? This franchise has been rather shit for some time, so look for Stern to do us a favor.Follow @raptorsrepublic
