Raptors Colangelo: Raps trying to land another top 10 pick

Quote:
Colangelo says there's "no truth at all" to rumor he offered DeMar DeRozan for the #2 pick. "DeMar has never been part of any conversation."

Colangelo did say he's "definitely exploring acquiring another top-10 pick," but maintains that DeRozan "won't be part of any package."

good to hear though I never thought DD would be leaving....

I would love another pick though in the top 10....if it was between 6-10 I would love to grab Leonard to add to the pg we'll be taking at #5

I wouldn't mind Leonard either as long as we grab Knight or Walker.
Biyombo is interesting, but if Bargs is on his way out, I would take a shot at Valenciunas.

I'd rather Biyombo over Valenciunas. He seems frail to me.

Maybe we are offering Bargnani and getting a top pick 10 and a bad contract (Salmons or Hamilton) in return. I don't see any team trading their top 10 pick straight up unless they get Derozan or Ed Davis in return.

its funny how this rumour all started with that guy suggesting the trade and it went crazy.
but i really dont think we should get a SF if we get another pick, cuz next years draft has quite a few SFs rather grab someone else with the second pick if we do get one

#7- #10 in this draft isn't that coveted you would think. We won't get one. We hear this every year and it doesn't happen because it's "too expensive".

With the fifth pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Toronto Raptors select Jan Vesely from the Czech Republic:

Rhett (Toronto)

Chad, it's beginning to look like the top 4 in the draft are settled: Irving, Williams, Knight, Kanter. Does the uncertainty begin with the Raptors at 5?

Chad Ford (ESPN) (1:22 PM)

Not sure they are set. But most likely four? Yes. Kanter is the biggest wildcard of that group. Raptors group is Knight if he's there, Kemba Walker, Jan Vesely, Valanciunas and Kanter if he's there. Kawhi Leonard also a darkhorse. If Knight is off the board, I think they are leaning toward Vesely. He's been their favorite for most of the year and would be a good fit in Toronto

Vesely?

Don't much about him, but if Walker is there and we take Vesely i'll be pissed.

i don't say that will happen, but i think if we trade barg + tpe and grab a top 10 pick + a bad contract, we can do it, because of the flexibilitie we have next year.

bargs + tpe
for
(Bucks) Maguette + 10th

for
(piston) hamilton + 8th + 32th

for
(bobcats) jackson + 9th

for
(suns) Carter + 13th + first 2012

for
(gsw) Biedrins + 11th + 44th

for
(jazz) okur + 12th + J. evans


those are just example, not trade proposal.
i don't think jazz cleveland and minny would take Bargs in exchange for their top 4 pick.

I'd love to see another pick, but really, it's pretty easy to say that they are trying to get it, and if they don't it's hard to be upset since there was the attempt at least. So, I don't think it changes my overall expectations all that much. I'll be happy to be surprised, and not terribly discouraged if nothing happens.
