I do however, think Randle will end up being the 'steal' of the draft if he drops out of the top 5. Good player, NBA ready, and good head on his shoulders. May not become a star, but will have a very productive NBA career. I would trade Ross, Vasquez and 20th pick if we could get Randle.
Oh the pitfalls of using a "smart" phone.
You know what I meant there guy.

We don't need to give up a core piece to land the Lakers #7 pick ... we just need to take Nash.
They would happily dump the #7 pick to free up another $10M to go hunting for a roster next season. That would leave TWO players: Kobe and our Canadian boy Sacre on the Lakers roster ... go try to buy 'Melo and sell him on having input to help with roster decisions.
A trade of Salmons, maybe Ty, maybe #20 ... take back Nash - but retain the ability to go over the cap to re-sign your own players like Kyle, 2Pat and G, if desired ... I don't picture Nash having much (if any) role, but better bringing him in for the sake of building a tradition than bringing in Wince.
The only way to bag a classy lady is to give her two tickets to the gun show... and see if she likes the goods.
It is not about the #7 pick per se.... although that would be amazing.
Cap space does not matter for the Raptors this year. Once you put in their cap holds they only have the MLE to use anyways. On draft night I want to see some MLSE spending. Take on Boozer, Nash, Asik/Lin, whatever to add assets.
After years of OTPP cheapy-cheapy and BC lack of patience band-aid solutions, it would be great to see some serious coin spent in the short term to watch a long term vision unfold.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
