but none of this matters tho. say we had the number 1 pick and another team came to you with this offer. you wouldn't do it right?
i probably wouldn't do it becuase i'm invested in the number 1 pick and i'm planning my team around that. It's all about perspective. As the Raptors i wouldn't do it becuase it involves giving up 3 of our last 4 1st round picks who we've invested time in. As the picker of davis i know i'd get criticised for giving him up as well, but secretly i may well feel tempted by being offered 3 nice pieces.

Davis may end up being the best pick since james in which case i'd probably change my mind, but i still believe DD can be a very good player and Ed can improve or be involved in a nice trade for us, ditto our pick this year although that is much more up in the air.
