Default If an expansion draft were held today, who would you select?

In the last expansion draft 2004 with the Bobcats, each team was allowed to protect 8 players on their roster. 1) Which 8 Raptors would you protect if one were held today? The players available currently on free agency are fairly decent for an expansion draft. 2) Going on just free agency, who would you try to sign to your 15 man roster if you were a new NBA expansion team? (You can look into the D-League and overseas as well).

Here's a list of some available free agents:

POINT GUARDS: Carlos Arroyo, Mike Bibby, Anthony Carter, Sherron Collins, Will Conroy, Antonio Daniels, Justin Dentmon, Jonny Flynn, Courtney Fortson, Eddie Gill, Vernon Hamilton, Troy Hudson, Mike James, Brian Morrison, Jannero Pargo, Chris Quinn and Walker Russell.

SHOOTING GUARDS: Blake Ahearn, Antonio Anderson, Kelenna Azubuike, Rodney Carney, Matt Carroll, Chris Douglas-Roberts, Dion Dowell, Andre Emmett, Maurice Evans, Christian Eyenga, Andrew Goudelock, Stephen Graham, Cory Higgins, Eddie House, Larry Hughes, Marko Jaric, Othyus Jeffers, Trey Johnson, Tarence Kinsey, Dwight Lewis, Travis Leslie, Shelvin Mack, Dwayne Mitchell, Ronald Murray, Michael Redd, Quentin Richardson, Xavier Silas, Chris Smith, Dar Tucker, Willie Warren, Kyle Weaver, and Terrence Williams.

SMALL FORWARDS: Renaldo Balkman, Da'Sean Butler, Joey Graham, Mike Harris, Lazar Hayward, Damion James, JaJuan Johnson, DJ Kennedy, Dominic McGuire, Adam Morrison, Jamario Moon, Larry Owens, Bobby Simmons, Al Thornton, Alando Tucker, Bill Walker, Chris Douglas Roberts, and Shawne Williams.

POWER FORWARDS: Keith Benson, Josh Boone, Brian Cardinal, Brian Cook, Josh Davis, Eric Dawson, Luke Harangody, Dennis Horner, Juwan Howard, Darnell Jackson, Solomon Jones, Antonio McDyess, Mikki Moore, Troy Murphy, Magnum Rolle, Jamal Sampson, Walter Sharpe, DaJuan Summers, Etan Thomas, Jordan Williams, Sean Williams and Chris Wright.

CENTERS: Chris Andersen, Tony Battie, Brian Butch, Jarron Collins, Marcus Cousin, Erick Dampier, Jordan Eglseder, Jarrid Famous, Kyrylo Fesenko, Dan Gadzuric, Mickell Gladness, Chris Hunter, Didier Ilunga-Mbenga, Chris Johnson, Dwayne Jones, Jerome Jordan, Brad Miller, Randolph Morris, Hamady Ndiaye, Greg Oden, Jarvis Varnado, Ben Wallace and Hassan Whiteside.

1. DeRozan 5. Bargnani
2. Lowry 6. Davis
3. Valanciunas 7. Calderon
4. Davis 8. Ross

Sign - SF Al Thornton, SG Quentin Richardson, PF Troy Murphy.

I'd try to orchestrate trades involving Calderon and Bargnani to help complete my roster.
