Default Grange: Raps Should of Gone After Pietrus Instead of Kapono

Should of, could of, would of .... just one of Colangelo's most significant mistakes here in Toronto.

He's like a longer, quicker Joey Graham, presumably with a bit more focus, but who knows. The Magic are certainly high on him and got him for less than $24-million. He'll be a starter on a team that is taking serious aim at the NBA Finals in part because he's their biggest and most athletic and physical perimeter player. He was signed specifically to give Orlando someone to throw at Wade and Pierce and LeBron. Kapono is a bit player with some serious athletic short-comings on a team that is 11 games under .500. I'm not privy to all the details - maybe he wanted more money, maybe he didn't want to come to Toronto, whatever. But it seems like one the Raptors might want to have back.
