Over the same period of time: Rajael Araujo, Joey Graham, Jonathan Bender, Alek Redojevic, Michael Bradley, and Chris Jefferies

I want BC to stay because this team is rebuilding and will need to do so through the draft. Who has a better record drafting then BC?

And he has continued his drafting prowess here. With his three first round picks for the Raptors he has selected Bargnani, Derozan, and Davis the teams best three assets.

The only way to ensure not returning to the past periods of poor drafting is keeping a sure thing.

Please keep your picks, avoid overpaying in F.A., and he won't be making trades to acquire complementary veterans to play with Bosh.
His last 2 draft selections couldn't have gotten any better in my opinion. Wonderful job by him and his scouting team..
