Recent measurements of Andrea would suggest he has the body to become a future centre. I see him as a cross between Pau Gasol and Dirk. What we can get out of the trades will be a bonus (Telfiar, Jack, Knight?) but we shouldn't lose focus on these two major talents.
Bargnani will never become a Center because he is not a good enough rebounder, shot blocker, or anything a Center is suppost to do. Plus he scores most of his points from the outside and will develop his driving to the hoop and low post skills. He is a true 4 who could also play 3 but definently not 5. Anyways the only option here for the Raptors is to trade down and draft Marcus Williams. They could look for a veteran Center in the trade but if no trade is workable they could stay at 1 and draft Marcus Williams.
