    I don't think Harden is worth max money and certainly wouldn't trade Valanciunas for him. I'd also rather see the Raptors go after a SF, rather than another SG (DeRozan, Fields, Ross), if they were going to make a big move to land a big money player... *cough* Rudy Gay *cough*...

    This is a good argument for drafting a guy like Andre Drummond. A young big on a rookie contract with potential (and he has shown loads of it) is always in demand. People talk about "needing" to draft a wing player like Ross, but they are easily replaceable. Clearly, smart GMs like Presti place a much higher value on young bigs as assets. We could have even traded JV and you would still have Drummond.

    Hasheem Thabeet. Michael Olowakandi. Cole Aldrich. Spencer Hawes. Sean Williams. Tyrus Thomas. Mohamadou Sene. Patrick O'Bryant. Hilton Armstrong. Fran Vazquez. Rafael Araujo. Andris Biedrins. Robert Swift. Darko Milicic. Chris Wilcox. Nikoloz Tskitishvili. Kwame Brown. Eddy Curry. DeSagana Diop.

    These are all lottery picks at #9 or higher who were projected as centers from the past 10 years. Young bigs that turn out to have NBA skills are great as assets.

    But nobody in the NBA seems to be particularly good at determining who's who. Big men are a big gamble.
