Default Colangelo Looking To Move Up In Draft

Interesting what Doug had to say in his mailbag today. Someone was asking what he thinks BC will do with that 17th pick on whether he think BC will use it to actually draft someone or use it as apart of a bigger package (trade) to possibly move up in this summer's draft.

Jay P, Brampton

Doug: I guarantee you Bryan will try to package No. 17 and a player (Ford? Parker? Nesterovic?) and move up into the lottery. But until we know the results of the lottery and the draft order, we canít even guess which team heíll call first.
