Thread: Is anyone else worried we're going to get "lucky" and get a top 4 pick this year?

    Not sure that really works. A) the draft is expected to be super strong .. cant imagine that people will be trading them away very readily, certainly for a rental of Lowry (especially if he isnt playing well, which would suggest his value is MUCH lower than the pick we traded for him .. even if he still had the same two years left on his contract .. which obviously he wont)

    On top of that, look at how much $ we have committed in 2015 (let alone 2014). Gay $19 mm, AB $12, AJ $7, LF $8,5m, DD 9.5 mm. Its gonna be VERY hard to blow that up and get people to take on those contracts.
    I guess the positive spin would be after 2015 the Raps only have DD, JV, TR, and QA on the books.... and maybe a 2014 pick and 2015 pick?

    The way things are going the Raptors still might be a bottom dweller despite the big contracts.

    That is fair enough - no doubt the talent has been upped.

    However, with likely no draft pick and no cap space I don't feel confident right now.

    All that could change pretty quick, of course, but it would likely mean AB and one of DD or TR are the pieces moved to plug holes (assumptions on my part).

    It also doesn't help me that I personally have lost all faith in GM and coach. I hope to be proven incorrect..... like so many who capitulate at the very worst time.
    BC hasn't given people much reason to feel hopeful. However, I hope he gets one more year(at least) 'cause he is one of the few GM''s who can make seemingly impossible trades happen. If anyone can get creative and plug holes, it's BC.

    We have a second round pick this year. It's the kings' pick so it should be high second round.

    We will have a low 40's pick ... something to plant overseas, or take a flier on a 3rd PG.

    Only if the Raps buy a pick.

    2013 going to OKC and MEM
    2014 lower of SAC or TOR going to PHX unless both are 31-36.
