    Default Keep Hedo and Draft Monroe

    Hedo's a unique player in the sense that he's big (6'10) and can pass (he was averaging almost 5 assist with Orl), the combination of the 2 allows him to be a matchup nightmare. so lets pretend that if he stays with the raptors for a second, and we manage to trade up in the draft to Nab another player that causes match up problems in Greg Monroe. In Greg Monroe, we get a C, 6-11, 240lb, and average almost 4 assist/gm. Raptors could revolutionize the centre position and be the first to have a"point-centre" facilitating the offense.
    Now if we pair up Monroe with Turkolu, we get 2 good passers who could feed the rest of the team, especially when you have 2 athletic marvels in Weems/ Derozan, they would run wild !

    How do you go about getting Monroe when he may go in the top 5. Not to mention everyone hates Hedo's guts. Not going to happen man.

    You want a 6-11, 240lb center....dishing out assists...?

    With a 6-10 220lb forward and a 7-0 250lb forward...who both like camping out at the 3 point line?

    Who do you plan on posting up...Jose?

    I don't understand where all the man-love for Monroe is coming from? He reminds me of Bargs, a centre that play's at the perimeter and avoids contact, with a questionable dedication to winning.

    The last thing this team needs is soft centres and perimeter players. I'll pass.

    Edit: Having Derozan or one of the point guards, playing at the block would be hilarious, if it wasn't such a horrible idea.

    I think we should draft Wall, personally.

    If we're going to draft Wall, we may as well skip Wall and go draft one of LBJ, Dwight Howard or Durant.

    Please don't compare Monroe to Bargnani. That's like saying every non-100% physical center is like Bargnani. Monroe plays inside plenty.
