    Jose Calderon probably fits that description the best, especially considering he wasn't even drafted. I know, he developed his game in Europe, but he's made huge strides from his rookie year to where he is now.

    Here's something scary though... Mo Pete (21st overall in 2000) is the latest pick in Raptors history to have ever had a legitimate NBA career. (Uros Slokar and P.J. Tucker don't count. )

    Although we didn't draft him, does Carlos Delfino count. I mean, he ddidn't get much playing time with the Pistons, and he pretty much got to show what he could do when he got here.

    I would say:
    1. Bosh: He grew massively since arriving.
    2. Carter: He started off at a much higher level than Bosh.
    3. Pick a name, no one who's been here a long time stands out like these two above.

    Hmmm, I think not. He was a pretty solid player when he showed up. He struggled in his first year due to a leg injury but beyond that he was good then.

    1. Alvin Williams (credit brakeman1; good call)
    2. Chris Bosh (as I've posted before, owes a lot to Mitchell and English for that)
    3. Tie between Mo Pete and Doug Christie (latter having his best years as a Raptor, IMO)

    Well, yeah.. I'm sadly disappointed in our scouting and drafting, a key part in our moving forward. Some of their draft players were just complete busts who hardly played in the NBA at all.. 5th overall in 99', Jonathan Bender.. We traded him immediately for Antonio Davis, that really didn't work out for Indiana. Kareem Rush wasn't a total bust at 20th overall, but he was traded away immediately as well.

    4 first round total busts at a glance, but just looking at the history here.. We've acquired a number of first round picks from trades that don't show up in the records, and it doesn't say what happened.. I'd assume they'd mention if they traded them away. (on wiki page for Raps draft history btw)

    On a high note, with our latest 3 picks, Hibbert, Derozan, and Ed Davis, maybe we're turning a corner? Or maybe they were complete obvious choices.. Has Colangelo done anything to improve scouting? It's not really mentioned a lot.
