Hindsight. What if Drummond turns out to be a flop, therefore no trade value? BC is now stuck with two rookie bigmen to try and ease into the NBA game. That's a lot to ask for one coaching staff.

In his last year of his contract, BC wants to make this team a winning club. Drummond was just too big of a gamble for a man in his position to make. Ross was a solid pick, let's not dwell too much.
