i think the protection is if the pick is top 3 we keep but it has to be lotto for the transaction to be complete
Top 3, Top 2, Top 2, Top 1, Top 1
So if we're going to be bad we better be really bad, not just regular Raptors bad.
Does anyone else hate these highlight reels where one kid, that is clearly more skilled than all of the competition combined, just dunks and blocks people repeatedly? Come to my rec league, theres a guy that looks like that because the rest of us suck so bad. you can dunk, congrats, you can block, congrats, youre tall. congrats.
The protection on the pick is crazy if you think about it. Lowry is still worth it, but the fact that the Raps lose the ability to trade away any first-round picks until it's used really ruins their trade flexibility.

Colangelo didnt want to be in the lottery this year
On the off chance we get lucky, we are top 3 protected. Im not saying I love the deal (Id like to think we could have got better lottery protection) .. but trading the Ross pick would have been a much worse deal.
Take exception with picking Ross himself (as opposed Drummond .. who btw isnt exactly lighting the league on fire <4ppg and 4rpg although a good start tonight .., T Jones, whoever) .. but Im not buying that trading that pick/ player would have been better than trading a future pick
That video looks an aweful lot like my highschool highlight tape, except my flattop was tighter and taller.

We may get a top 3 pick to keep after all this year!
