8- Valanciunas pick
9- Kyle Lowry deal
All very solid basketball moves
sure they're ok, but within the context of the bigger picture they're not so good or at the very least the luster is taken off a bit. outside of Val, parker and at the moment lowry (although i would bet the farm he won't apply here soon enough) all of those players were Raptors
for a very short time and were either traded away or didn't want to come back. Belinelli for George. Loved that deal when it happened. loved it. then a little while later he ships out Beli for straight up garbage.
and plus most of those moves didn't really mean much for actual team success. Did any of those really translate into team success?
