    Default ESPN Insider: Raptors looking to move up in draft

    This is from Chad Ford in today's Insider article:

    The Pacers and Raptors are in the same boat as the Wolves. They would like to move up in the draft and have inquired about the Sixers' and Nets' picks. They also wouldn't mind moving out of the draft if they got the right pieces in return.
    Could the Raptors be moving up in their quest for a big man? Monroe, Favors or Cousins are all slotted to be top 5-7 picks..

    i think there shooting for cousins or turner and they'll prolly trade derozan if they got the 2 pick.

    I that would be nice. But I'd want either Turner or Favors. Cousins scares me too much, and I don't he's the type of player Colangelo wants.

    That would be a great move if we can take Turner. It will give us something to dream about for future and ... But I have a feeling it will involve taking on Brand's contract and also giving them DD which I am fine by both as long as we manage to unload Hedo and Calderon.

    Why is everyone throwing around Demar Derozans name in all these trades. The guy is very young. Im pretty sure he's capable of just as much as anyone at his position. Doesn't anyone want to see his potential? Not to mention this guy is TEAM FIRST, we dont want any ME guys anymore.

    It's not that people want to trade him (most don't), but the fact is that you need to give something up in order to get something and chances are that Turner is going to be a better player than DeRozan, so you always try for the better player. And Turner is most definitely not a ME guy.

    I think if they trade Kulemin and Grabovksi to the NETS, they might give the Raptors the number 3# pick. I heard that Prokhorov is a fan.

    Good point Tim. Im not familiar with Evan Turner's personality but what ive seen from his game show he is not a ME guy. Nonetheless, i was adressing other rumors involving ME guys like Arenas. I just think we dont need anymore distractions.

    Turner's got a game show?? Isn't that against NCAA rules?

    Seriously, though, I don't know that much about Evans, personally, but on the court, he's definitely a team first guy, and he seems to be a nice, soft spoken guy off the court. I don't think guys like Evans are the type to cause distractions.
