    Default Raptor Draft Night Hopes and Expectations

    If you are anything like me a good majority of your Raptor-related thoughts have been draft related since early-mid January. Now that the special night is almost, finally, here what are your hopes and expectations for the evening?


    If an option isn't given, use the comment section to voice any differing hopes and expectations.

    For the draft selections, use the comments to clarify who if you wish.


    *Please note this is a multiple choice poll*

    I didn't want to get greedy so I only chose three options

    But if I had to prioritize and pick one option, I'd choose 'Trade Bargnani'. I think he has ultimately become the Hedo of 2011. I'd want that over another lotto pick. However if we can get another lotto pick for Bargs, even better

    The Raptors need a culture change, and trading Bargnani is the way to achieve that, imho.

    Trade Bargs for a lotto pick (Sac #7?), Draft Walker and Biyombo
    Next year get a solid Sf (Barnes?)

    I really have absolutely no idea what to expect come draft night. I wouldn't be surprised to see them wheeling and dealing, but I also wouldn't be surprised to see them stick with the #5 pick.

    I don't think Bargnani gets traded on draft night though, because of his base year contract. He could, to a team under the cap, but I'm doubtful it will happen.

    If the Raptors don't draft a PG, I wouldn't be surprised to see Calderon on the roster come the start of the season, and I wouldn't have a problem with that at all. Unless they get a clearly better option, then I'd rather stick with Calderon. A better defensive system and the loss of Bargnani will make his defense a lot less of a liability.

    1) trade calderon (get rookie PG via trade or high draft pick to develop)
    2) Draft a SF
    3) Get a veteran defensive C through free agency

    So you want a rookie PG, but a veteran center. Can't make your mind up on whether you want to compete now or later?

    LOL - Nice and so true.

    I had about 19 but 10 was the max. I would definitely have put that in for one of the 10 had I thought of it.

    Draft Bismack, use the tpe and get a mid to late first round pick for a PG/SG (Klay Thompson(if he falls),
    Cory Joseph, Darius Morris, Shelvin Mack, Nolan Smith or Iman Shumpert).

    Don't draft Biyombo. Period.

    I have a really bad feeling Kanter is going to turn into a worse offensively bargnani with slightly better D.

    If you're thinking what I'm thinking, I believe that the fascination with Biyombo is to pair him with Bargs so that he gets his rebounding and shot-blocking mule beside him. I don't buy that AB should move to the 4-spot and displacing the future development of Amir and Ed. At the 5th spot, it's the best player that needs to be drafted. Biyombo is not a lottery pick. Never.

    BTW, Bismack had a one-on-one workout with himself in front of league execs and scouts and lost. What does that tell you about an undersized center? Yes, I've heard about the Ben Wallace comparisons but he truly has little to offer in terms of the full package (including a decent post game). I would even go as far as saying that I prefer Faried over him. The Raps cannot afford to accommodate Bargs yet again in this upcoming draft.
