Ehh, don't put much into anything Geewiz says about the draft. Here's a guy who said teams wouldn't want Bargnani even if he was GUARANTEED to be Dirk simply because he doesn't fit a need.

Stick to commenting on the Wizards, it's something you do well.

EDIT: Here's more about the pick:

TORONTO (CP) - Toronto Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo says he will keep the top pick in the NBA draft, and that he's narrowed his choice down to two players.

Speculation is Colangelo will go with either Italian forward Andrea Bargnani or LaMarcus Aldridge out of the University of Texas with the No. 1 pick.

With no clear top pick in this year's draft, there has been much speculation about Colangelo's plans, and he dispelled those rumours when he met with the media on the eve of Wednesday's draft.

"At this point, it seems to be that we are more or less locked in at the No. 1 spot," Colangelo said. "It's the day before the draft, and it appears we will utilize the pick."

Colangelo said he has taken calls from several teams since the Raptors won the draft lottery.

"There have been quite a few inquiries about the pick, nothing we felt was enough to change our course and use the selection," Colangelo said.

"The offers that we received were not in the calibre that we felt it required to move the pick."

The Raptors have the top pick in the draft for the first time in franchise history.
