im ok with the pick. what im not ok with is taking on another albotross contract that CANT be amnestied to get that pick..
If we're talking about Thomas, then I agree. His contract is just as ugly as Bargnani's, and equally long. But Gordon has just 2 years remaining.

IMO, Gordon for 2 years plus a pick, is better than amnestying Bargnani plus no pick.

Mainly because Colangelo has not once used his cap space wisely in Toronto, so I have little reason to believe that amnestying Bargnani will help improve the team.

Furthermore, I don't expect the Raptors to be a legit playoff contender for years, which makes Gordon's contract less painful.
