Do I believe that he can become a good scoring PF capable of starting on a team with a tough defensive C? Yes. The problem with that is that even at his best as a talented offensive PF, he has no place on the Raptors. He would still have to be traded because there is just no way in hell he becomes even close to as good as Chris Bosh. A Bosh/Bargnani is not going to work. So unless you are happy with having your #1 pick being a 6th man, he will need to go at some point.
Okay since you started comparing ill go back and pretend like we picked gay, roy or aldridge instead of bargnani...
Of those three i think only Roy would actually be a starter on this team, people need to stop over-hyping the fact that he was drafted #1 because it was a weakass draft!
And for now im fully okay with the fact that he is a 6th man. Now later on in his career if he were to prove himself as a consistent top level PF, then yes i agree with you that he would be a better fit with another team considering bosh is still here.
But even if he does have to leave with BC as our gm i know for a fact we would get a lot for him.
