Is anyone really surprised that Colangelo is dangling yet another one of our draft picks?

Will they even have a first rounder though? There are whispers that Bryan Colangelo is intrigued with the idea of using Toronto’s pick in order to bring in a big-name talent.
If it is someone under contract, a move could be made before the draft in a last-ditch effort to convince Chris Bosh to come back. A sign-and-trade would mean the Raptors make the pick and hope the team involved in the sign-and-trade likes the guy they went with and wants him (since free agency happens after the draft).
Of course, the Raptors could make the pick for a team, but that’s risky, since the player they want in the sign-and-trade would have to give his word he will sign with Toronto. That’s very unlikely as all the big free agents want to see their value in the open market before making a decision.
Should be an interesting next few months. Maurizio said Monday what everyone already knew – there will be four or five new faces (at least) on the club next year.
