    I wonder if we will package our two 1st rounders in order to move up. I think something else is in the works.

    It's possible, but very difficult to get everything in line. The trade won't become official until Memphis makes their selection, which means that the higher team (let's say Phoenix) would need to pick the guy we want, not knowing for sure whether the guys they want will be available at #20 and #22, and not knowing whether Memphis will cancel the deal at the last minute because a guy they like falls or a better offer comes along. There are a lot of contingencies that get in the way of such a trade going smoothly.

    Id waaaay rather have 20 and 22 then one lottery pick. This draft is deep and unpredictable. 2 cracks at a first rounder would be amazing.

    And having 2 picks so close together presents its own advantages. If Masai had his list down to 5 players, chances are that 2 of them are Raptors in a few hours.

    Yeah it saves a lot of last minute leg work by the scouts and the Masai. Their range of players for each spot is going to look really similar.
