Once you stray down a path, any path, it's hard to overcome.
What's the alternative?

This team isn't going to build through free-agency. They can't build through free-agency.

They need to build through the draft, and despite what you seem to think, it can be done. Look at what Oklahoma City is doing, and Memphis. It can be successful and, in the case of the Raptors, it has to be successful. The only way they're going to attract good free-agents is to build a good team. The way to do so (in the Raptors case) is to build through the draft, and have good asset management.

That's just the way it is.
