Our front court would be stacked defensively in Valanciunas and Davis.

That'd be nasty for years.

Can't believe we ended up in the 7/8 position.

Really messes up the rebuild unless we win the lottery.

there arnt many 7 fters that can move and shoot like bargnani. before his calf fell apart this season he was playing great, averaging pts in the mid 20s and it seemed as though he finally learned how to rebound. I would prob trade him for davis but i dont think we could do that without having to add something important.

I'd do Bargs + our pick for their pick. Without hesitation. We have too many bigs as it is.

I didn't know Bargnani was still overrated. Yeah he can shoot, but I hate when your big men can't rebound or defend because you need to build a roster that masks his weaknesses.

I'd trade Bargs for a chance at even T-Rob. Bargs can take his primo commercials with him.

If you look at the odds, the worst team actually only has something stupid like a 24% chance to keep the top pick. I obviously don't want an NFL-type situation where it's guaranteed you get the top pick and tanking becomes an even bigger concern, but it's kind of a BS setup that you only have a 1 in 4 chance to keep the top pick if that's where you finish prior to the lottery.

The hate for Bargnani is similar to the hate for Kessel. In Toronto, it seems that a guy can be an all-world scorer with unreal skill, but he won't be as appreciated as scrub "plumber" players like Jerome "JYD" Williams and Mike Brown.

Nah. Andrea is just a scorer. And as a 7 footer you need be a good rebounder. Simple as that.

Here's the reverse order as it stands right now. This'll make it easier to track if/when a team moves up:

14) Houston
13) Phoenix
12) Milwakuee
11) Portland
10) New Orleans (via Minnesota)
09) Detroit
08) Toronto
07) Golden State*
06) Brooklyn**
05) Sacramento
04) New Orleans
03) Cleveland
02) Washington
01) Charlotte

*Golden State loses this pick to Utah if it falls outside of the top 7. So if any team behind the Warriors moves up and GS stays where it is, the pick will belong to the Jazz.

** Brooklyn loses this pick to Portland unless they get to move up into the top 3.

As a reminder from the previous page, the Raptors' odds of moving up are 3.5% to 1st, 4.1% to 2nd, and 4.8% to 3rd. They also have about a 72% to stay where they are and somewhere around 17% to slide back between 1 and 3 spots.

He's got tons of upside... if he can ever put it together. If Raps end up staying where they are, taking a flier on Jones wouldn't be a bad move as most of the top talent don't have that star upside but Jones is one of the few players that does. Could be a huge bust too though.

All depends on how much you believe in him.
