Chad Ford was right with GMs over-valuing players they draft. Remember a few years back when Paxson would never trade Deng, Ben Gordon and Hinrich. BC is putting Bargnani
in a pedestal, while other GMs are offering low-ball trade scenarios. Bargnani
will never traded until the Raptors
get a true franchise player. As soon as D. Rose came in the picture, Ben Gordon was suddenly taking too many shots. Chicago let him walk for nothing. Hinrich was dealt for cap space so Chicago could enter into the 2009 summer free agent sweepstakes (Hello Carlos Boozer). While Deng and his contract are available for any takers. Draft a true franchise player and Bargnani
will be out the door.
