    Default BC clears the air: DeRozan not in play but they are trying to get another top ten

    via http://twitter.com/#!/DraftExpress

    Colangelo says there's "no truth at all" to rumor he offered DeMar DeRozan for the #2 pick. "DeMar has never been part of any conversation."
    Colangelo did say he's "definitely exploring acquiring another top-10 pick," but maintains that DeRozan "won't be part of any package."
    and unfortunately :/
    Bryan Colangelo is in Belgrade right now watching Jan Vesely in the Serbian league finals.

    3 cheers for trying to get another top 10 pick without giving up DeMar!

    I knew it, BC got his eyes on Euro at the 5th pick, tho I do like Jan's size and somewhat explosiveness, hes a definititely an offensive upgrade to JJ at the 3 spot.

    Outside of Jonas i don't see him taking any dudes with boom or bust potential. He's just doing due diligence and exploring all his options (please god let him just be exploring all his options)

    Definitely like this quote though!

    EDIT: Especially since he did not say that Bargnani won't be a part of such a package.

    My understanding is that the top euro prospects (minus Kanter) aren't coming to North America to work out for teams and so NBA teams have to go to Europe to check them out. This weekend they are holding the euro combine. In regards to Vesely I believe this is just BC doing due diligence as I remember something about Vesely not going to the euro combine nor doing individual workouts with NBA teams. Vesely, though, will come to North America just before the draft to do physical tests. I think Montiejunas isn't doing work-outs either.

    I'd rather see a prospect playing in real games rather than just running through some drills anyway.

    This is good news, indeed. He had talked earlier in the year about not wanting 2 rookies as the team was young enough. I guess that was before he decided or was told how drastic the changes needed to be.

    Never really thought DD was in play.
    Not surprised he's exploring the opportunity to nab a pick. My bet is for Leonard, Vesely or Valuncianas if he drops. Not sure he's really going to push to get one, but they're all intriguing if they could be nabbed at a low cost. I like what I've read about Leonard as a defensive prospect, but he's obviously a bit a reach at the 5th pick.

    I vaguely remember BC stating in 2006 that Charlie Villanueva was a key piece of the Raptors core for years going forward ..... only to trade him a few weeks later for TJ Ford.

    Was thinking the same thing. First of all, Bryan has stated over and over, that no one on this team is untradable.

    I think this should just be read as, "we are not shopping him". Which really means, you better have a serious package if you want to mention his name, otherwise don't waste our time.

    and unfortunately :/
    Bryan Colangelo is in Belgrade right now watching Jan Vesely in the Serbian league finals.

    I am glad he is going to watch him, we need to know what is out there. In fact I am going to check my not so legal streaming account and see if I can catch a game or two myself. I don't want to draft him, because I have not heard much buzz about this kid, but don't want to burry my head in the sand either. I would like to know why Ford keeps serving us a plate full of Vesely every time he does a mock. Is he mocking us? Is it a way to get hits for his banter?

    Guys,

    Demar may not go for the #2/Flynn, but he is by no means untouchable. Do I think he will be traded? No. I think Jose,Barbosa,Bargnani, Amir, & even Kleiza are the trade baits, but Demar will probably receive the biggest return and who knows what the return could be. All we know is that it isn't with Minny. But don't act like Demar is the "franchise" I honestly don't know why so many overrate him.

    Going for another pick in this draft makes a lot less sense than adding a pick in next year's.

    Not if he sees two guys in the top ten who can become really good players. Some say it's a weak draft but that doesn't mean it will be known as a weak draft later... There is a lot of talent in that top ten even if most of the players won't make a huge impact from day one. I hope he's targeting Alec Burks with that second pick he's looking to add...

    Hard to say that as one stated don't know positioning but also very dangerous given the unresolved CBA could be raising the age requirement and thereby eliminating eligibility of about Edit: 70% of next year's projected lottery picks.

    Funny how you added the EVEN Kleiza in there as if Kleiza is a bigger part of the team that Barg. Should have been EVEN Barg. lol

    I said that because last I heard he was hurt, and had a massive contract so him moving is unlikely...plus he hasn't shown anyone he can play like he did in the worlds. I obv. don't think he's a piece moving forward but rather a piece you can't move.
