    Default If the Raps could re-draft since 2004

    The Indiana post made me think of players we could of potentially drafted. I thought it would be fun to see what 'could of been'. I know that if we had drafted certain players in earlier years we wouldn't have been in the position to draft other players in latter years.
    Also some of our picks were based on position/need rather than talent. So, this is a completely fruitless exercise but meh.

    I decided to start with 2004 because the Araujo pick still haunts me at night.

    2004 #8 pick - Rafael Araújo (C) -- Andre Igoudala (G/F)

    2005 #7 pick - Charlie Villanueva (PF) -- Andrew Bynum (C)
    #16 pick - Joey Graham (G/F) -- Danny Granger (SF)
    #47 pick - Roko Ukić (G) -- Louis Williams (G)
    * we were one pick shy of Monta Ellis and Gortat also went after Roko

    2006 #1 pick - Andrea Bargnani (PF/C) -- LaMarcus Aldridge (PF/C)
    #35 pick - P.J. Tucker (F) -- Paul Millsap (PF)

    2008 #17 pick traded to Indiana (we know how that turned out)

    2009 #9 pick DeMar DeRozan (SG) -- Ty Lawson (PG)
    * very debatable but he impressed me in the play-offs (Jennings and Jrue Holiday other options)

    2010 #13 pick Ed Davis (PF) -- Landry Fields (G/F)

    2011 #5 pick Jonas Valančiūnas (C) -- Jonas Valančiūnas (C)
    * I'm at the front of the JV badwagon but there are definite stand out that proved their worth this past year Klay Thompson, Kawhi Leonard, Kenneth Faried, and Bismack showed flashes of what he is capable of

    2012 #8 pick Jeremy Lamb (SG) [watch this be a terrible pick proving hindsight is 20/20]

    2012/2013 Lineup

    PG Lawson / Williams
    SG Igoudala / Lamb
    SF Granger / Fields
    PF Aldridge / Millsap
    C Bynum / Valančiūnas
