    Default Lotto time!

    So I know we have a 0.7 chance of winning the lottery. If there was ever chance for the raptors to win into the top 3 it would be the weakest draft in years. My question fur y'all if we did who would you pick with 1, 2 and 3 pick.

    With 1 pick I would have to go with Noel. A front court of him and JV is just too tempting for me. I know his injuries and weighted in at 206 lbs but, he has the most potential. I feel like are team is in position to wait for him. We really don't need a productive rookie this year. He could take the whole year off a la Derrick Rose.

    For the other 2 picks I would go with Victor Oladipo. I have developed a serious man crush on this dude. I'm a huge DD support so you know it would take a lot for me to support a would be successor of his. I just feel like he would be a perfect fit next to Rudy. Hands down the best defensive player in this draft. His motor doesn't stop and be has a crazy work ethic. Really smart got his degree in three years. Did I mention that his an athletic freak! Measure out 6'4.25" in shoes with a 6'9.25" and a 42 inch max vert. He got better every year in college. At worst he will be Tony Allen but, he is currently already a better offensively player that TA. I know it's crazy for the raptors to draft another wing player but, with a new GM I can see him taking care of our wings issue. There is just too much money there and to many assets not to use them. I'm done with my rant.

    Can some tell if any team has ever won the lottery with a 0.7 chance or less?

    The lowest percentage to ever win the lottery was the Magic in 1993. They had a 1.52% chance. Ended up picking Chris Webber.

    I think if we win (not bloody likely) It may be in our best interest to trade down..... or at least look at that possibility.

    I don't wanna win. This draft is weak, let's get rid of the OKC debt once and for all. At the very least we'll get our ability to trade 1st round picks back.

    Default Chad Fords thoughts

    First choice: Noel (0.7 percent)

    Second choice: Bennett (0.8 percent)

    Third choice: Burke (1.0 percent)

    Analysis: The Raptors must send their pick to the Thunder if they don't win one of these three spots -- so no team might be praying harder for a lottery miracle. If they get the pick, it's going to be tough call for the Raptors, who clearly want to win now. Noel is a pick for the future, and he eventually would be a nice fit next to Jonas Valanciunas on the front line. However, Noel is one to two seasons away from having any real impact. I'm not sure the Raptors are that patient. Bennett is much further along and could step in right now and help at both the 3 and 4. The team likes point guard Kyle Lowry, but he's a free agent soon and Burke could help them a lot even as a backup.

    Oladipo will def be Tony Allen 2.0. Freakish defensive presence but useless on offense. Not sure I'd take him top 3 in the draft though.

    Otto Porter really intrigues me.

    Colangelo is going to represent us at the draft lottery.

    His last act as GM.

    disagree. oladipo shot 60% from the field and 44% from 3, which are percentages tony allen has never approached. on the flip side, no one is tony allen on defense and oladipo won't be either.

    comparison i saw in a chat the other day is iguodala, which i think works better.

    i don't understand this viewpoint unless you're sure the new GM will tear everything down and tank hard next year. if we go into the season with this core where do you think we'll be picking? i'd guess 10 to 16... would you rather have that than 1 to 3 this year?

    i wouldn't. i'd take trey burke 1, 2, or 3, and then i'd do cartwheels and feel truly optimistic about this franchise for the first time in more than ten years. think his floor is borderline all star. reminds me of ty lawson if ty lawson was a better point guard. a little bigger but less explosive.

    i also like oladipo and porter but think they're poor fits with our roster as it currently stands, and wouldn't be very excited about noel unless we flipped him for a future top five pick.

    Burke at the third pick.


    1 or 2 I would look to trade down.


    Another option would be what does attaching bargnani to the pick do for you?
