Raptors Should Trade Down


Bryan Colangelo's luck may have come a year too early for the Toronto Raptors.

The team won the rights to the number one overall pick in the upcoming NBA Draft last night despite having just an 8.8 percent chance of doing so. Unfortunately, the draft appears to be dominated by the two forward positions, which in Toronto’s case, are already locked down by Chris Bosh and Charlie Villanueva.

It’s going to be a tough decision for the Raptors. LaMarcus Aldridge and Tyrus Thomas are not even close to the player that Chris Bosh is and Adam Morrison might be a better shooter than Villanueva, but his upside is nowhere near as close.

One idea might be to trade down for either Randy Foye or Marcus Williams. Mike James had a great year running point for Toronto but he might be more of a sell high type player rather than a long term solution.

  • New York’s pick was traded to Chicago so the Bulls will draft second, but it might get even worse for the Knicks. According to NBADraft.net, they might take Josh Boone with the 29th overall pick.

    Boone might be the softest player that came out. I think part of the reason he left UConn was because he can’t handle Jim Calhoun. I wonder how he will deal with Larry Brown ripping him to every New York newspaper.

    No player has gotten worse since his freshman year than Boone. He got bullied around all year in the Big East and then followed that up with piss poor performances in the tournament.

    Soft, no head, marginal defender, can’t score… Sounds like Isiah’s type of guy to me.
