The draft ain't the most trustworthy method, as proven in the past.
Maybe not, but having flexibility and assets is.

We also could've flipped DeRozan, the 8th pick and the 2013 1st to OKC for Harden (basically a mirror of the Houston trade).

Lots of options when you stockpile assets and maintain flexibility. Colangelo has a pretty good track-record in the draft anyway, if he didnt consistently mortgage our future he could've built a nice team.
