I was just thinking about a possible scenario.

Would Raptor fans mind if Raptor fans trade Andrea Bargnani... but then draft Dontas Montiejunas to replace him (provided that Irving and Williams are off the board)?

It would be like replacing the same skill set: a big man that can shoot the 3s. Maybe BC would take a gamble that this guy will be better defensively/on the glass than Bargnani/

I'd prefer going in a direction that best suits the team that exists without Bargnani. There are other ways to run an offense than stretching the floor with your big guy. I'm going to count on Insider's dream coming true.

I'm also not a big fan of a stretch big.

I just thought it was strange of BC to go out and acquire David Andersen last offseason and Ajinca during the season. Both shoot a lot from the outside. Perhaps all along he was hoping to find Andrea Bargnani's replacement?

Could very well be. But he also gets stuck getting the same sorts of players at just about every position, like a bad habit.

Donatas is not a shooter. He is aggressive post scorer who draw a lot of fouls and... who can hit open 3.

I know I know, he is not a top 10 pick IMO. And VERY risky. But he is not like Bargnani, not even close.

Yeah - as something other than a high pick, I'd find him intriguing, but I'd still worry that they'd work to make him more of a shooter.

Very true. Unless you're Dirk Nowitzki(Which Bargs could've been), I don't want you on my team. And really what are the odds of that.

BTW, I really admired David Anderson. He shot from the outside, yes, but he did a lot of dirty work, did a lot of hustle plays and grabbed a lot of boards. I actually thought he was a major scrub. I really wanted to keep him as our backup center this season. He actually shot the ball well too from the outside.
