Not true! Skita was a 19 year old player that hardly ever played on the main squad. He was drafted because of how great he looked in practice, but was never really competed on the main squad, he was on the junior squad. Bargnani is already 20 and is a major contributor of a european powerhouse team on thier main squad. He is been scouted mainly because of how he plays on the court, not in the practice session.

I cannot believe how underreported how poorly scouts have done thier work scouting players in the past few years. When scouts were scouting players based on what they were doing in actual games and not in practice, they were doing an excellent job finding quality NBA players, But then they started going younger for guys that did not play on the main squad and/or rarely played on the main squad and were drafted because of thier size and practice habits, and tons of busts started coming! Thats why guys who were contributors in europe like Dirk, Peja, Gasol, have been stars in the league, and others like Skita, Welsh, Podkolzine, Korolev, Biendrins have not done anything in the league. All those players that succeeded were over 20 years old and were big contributors in europe, the ones that failed were under 20 years old, did not play on the main teams, and looked great in workouts. Of coarse the wildcard of all of them is Darko because he was extremely young, but was a starter and major contributor on a main team. What I saw of him in Orlando makes me believe he will break out big time next season.

I have been watching some highlight videos on thomas, aldridge & and Bargini.
I was all for aldridge before due to raptors needs, but after seeing the videos, i'm not sold on aldrige at all. thomas seems to be the best talent, but position makes it hard to draft him. bargini is the real thing. he looks better than dirk in terms of speed and agility, but again, he's not gonna be the center we need. he's more suited for PF i think.

all in all, i'd rather trade the pick away.
none of these guys seem to fit our needs.
