Default National Post: Raptors unlikely to trade number 8 pick

Smokescreen?

Quote:
“I would say on Monday, but Thursday’s a long way away, that we’d be holding on to that eighth pick,” vice-president of basketball operations Ed Stefanski said after the Raptors held their last group workout on Monday.

Why?

“I think it’s the talent, right now,” Stefanski said. “There are offers out there for the eighth pick. But it’s the talent right now.”

Moreover, Stefanski said he had not heard a word about Lowry. Naturally, Stefanski added that the Raptors were “exploring every option.”

I don't think the quote was definitive enough to support such a strong headline. It sounded like denial and hedging, not a strong determination to milk the #8 at all costs.

Did you really think we would get something worth trading at the 8 ball slot....keep it and draft Terence Jones
