Default Colangelo Fine With the 9th Pick

Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo said he would have no problems if his franchise stood pat after the lottery with the ninth pick. When he was in Phoenix, Colangelo drafted Marion and Amare Stoudemire with ninth picks. "I think that we'd get a great player at No. 9," said Colangelo. "I like 9 for some reason. But if I get 1, 2, or 3, I won't complain. But I like 8, 9, and 10, too."
