In my opinion, the PG of the future will not be found in the 2012 NBA Draft:
HoopsWorld.com ranks the PG's in this year's draft. Just a warning, you might want to take a gravol before reading this, it is an ugly year for PG's.
what about Avery Bradley?
Here's a nice little article on him and his strengths.
Toronto might have competition for Dragic's services, via Twitter:

Catching a plane but I told the Pdx scribes I'd be back for Dragic's press conference in July
There's no way you trade Lowry to keep Dragic. Some team is going to overpay for him anyways.
He has been mighty impressive since starting.
Interesting write up on him in the description.
Whoever told you skies the limit is looking dumb because I'm 22 and i'm moonwalking on the sun.
I don't think they have to make a play for a PG this season. The options are scarce in the draft. Free agency has some interesting options but Jose Calderon is under contract for another season so there is no urgency. I'd rather see them sign a guy like Kirk Hinrich to come off the bench for now and if Jose bolts at the end of next season they're covered with a decent starter to replace him. Then in the meantime they can continue to look for the long term option. Hinrich has proven that he can be a solid option at the 2 as well. He's also a good defender.
I am still intrigued by Nick Calathes. In looking for something else, I came across this:
He was born in 1989 like DD and ED. Still young - just turned 23. Would be a nice addition - especially with Calderon looking to be around for another year at least.4. Nick Calathes, PG, Dallas
European Club: Panathinaikos (Greece) Odds Heíll Defect: 65 percent. Calathes left Florida as a guard with size, tools and questionable judgment. Under the tutelage of Panathinaikos head coach Zeljko Obradovic and his backcourt mate, Dimitris Diamantidis, Calathes has blasted up the learning curve and left most of his silly turnovers in the dust. Thereís still a contingent who doesnít understand the extent of Obradovicís faith in Calathes. Iím of the mind that itís Obradovicís trust itself which has infused the 6-foot-5 Calathes with the confidence necessary to reach his full potential. Heís not quite there, but he is close. Close enough to lead Greece into Olympic qualifiers this summer and definitely close enough to run an NBA offense for 20 minutes on game nights.
A 2nd round draft pick for him? Or how about up to $3M?
yeah i remember talking about him before, he'd certainly be worth a second rounder.
I think if the Mavs don't get Williams - or Nash -that they'd re-sign Kidd and bring Calathes over. If they don't, I'd very much be interested in Calathes.
