- Trading own 1st round pick for Kyle Lowry
- Drafting Terrence Ross 8th overall. Passing up on the best player available(Drummond).
- Trading Ed Davis and Jose Calderon for Rudy Gay
Not gonna sound like a hypocrite here and and say, should've done this and that. I say this though. Of those three. The one that i hated the most was the Kyle Lowry trade. HATED it from the start. Because you just dont trade a potential lottery pick for an UNPROVEN PG who has history of being a headcase.
As for the 2012 draft. I knew the Raps are screwed when Warriors took Barnes 7th overall. I was hoping the Warriors would take Drummond. But once Stern said the name Harrison Barnes. I knew the Raps will take a guard 8th overall. Because it wouldn't make sense if they draft another C. I was hoping the Raps would take Rivers or Lamb. They took Ross.
But this is a great example why you should always pick the BEST player available.
Finally, the Rudy Gay trade. Loved that trade last year. But looking back now, geez, i think Colangelo just made that move to save his job. Because Rudy Gay is a big name player. But watching him play right now. He's not that good. Can you say overrated?
