We drafted Ross after awarding DD a huge contract that pretty much guarantees him a starting spot on the Raptors
for years and Fields a huge contract as well to be our starting SF. Was Ross drafted to potentially be a starting SG for us? That makes little sense as DD has that locked in.
Unless Ross was drafted to play SG and DD move to SF... That would mean we gave Fields a huge contract to come off the bench. All in all, a cacophony of nonsense decisions by the Raptors.
As stated above, Drummond makes Bargnani
more expendable and would see minutes regardless.
we drafted Ross because of his D and shooting
