Big men generally take long to develop and whether they're kept or not, Toronto already has Ed Davis,Jonas Valancunias to add to Amir Johnson,Andrea Bargnani and which ever FA they sign. Adding Drummond would mean you'll have to wait for him along with another rookie in Valancunias to hopefully become good core players.

Wishful thinkers hope he'll be Andrew Bynum or even Dwight Howard,but he'll likely be DeAndre Jordan.

Take Lillard,Waiters or trade down adding a starter and late teens pick,then draft Marshall or Rivers.
are you that bankiz guy?

even if the worse case scenario is deandre jordan, you take him. based off of position and need, he's value would far exceed his draft position.

the best thing about big bodied projects is that there is always someone else that believes that they can teach and transform them, so they retain value. with a guard, they're out of the league with no value after two-three seasons.
