I've heard everything - Gallo, Chandler, Batum, top 5 draft pick, whatever. Although I'd be happy with any of the above, my preference would be to make something happen with Nicolas Batum and draft the BPA this summer regardless of position. I see Batum as a rotwhiler on a leash...he's just waiting for an opportunity to explode onto the scene in the right situation. He'd address defense and knock-down three point shooting, two huge concerns for this team. Given the opportunity I think he's a 16/5/3 guy.

My question is what do you want to see happen with the small forward position now and in the long-term? What do you think will happen?
The draft. Players like Harrison Barnes and Lamb would be available in the draft for us. Even Kidd-Gilchrist would looks very good in a Raptor Uniform.
