That's just it, "best" is such a subjective term. It's not just individual basketball skills that determines the "best" available player, but also attitude, potential for improvement (and ultimate projected ceiling), age, injury history, position (both scarcity of talent and team need), fit with current roster (does he need to contribute now, or can he be a multi-year project with current depth), etc...
When it comes to Drummond, even if Colangelo didn't think he was the BPA, he must've realized how a player with Drummond's potential would be valued amongst other GMs. I wonder if drafting Drummond (for the sole purpose of trading him) even entered Colangelo's mind.
