Default Raptors 2013 1st rounder

These are the details of the pick we traded and its protection:

Raptors 2013 first round pick (protected top 3 and 15-30 in 2013, top 2 and 15-30 in 2014-15, top 1 and 15-30 in 2016-17, unprotected in 2018).


Looking at the worst case scenario would have the raptors finish outside of top 3 and that pick is 4th. That would mark this season as a truly lost one as the raptors would not have progressed at all and to make matters worse lowry who we traded that pick for could bolt after his contract is up. The best case would be that raptors actually snap out of this and somehow get that 9th seed () and that pick ends up being 13th or 14th. Which at least shows this squad is progressing to a playoff berth. Another scenario that could be better than the above would be raptors turn into the craptors and tank it and get the best odds possible for staying in the top 3. This would allow raptors to pick up a stud and make a serious push next year for the playoffs.

Idk things are really looking bleak after that depressing game....

Tank for Andrew Wiggins whenever he's eligible to be drafted

I think we are actually playing pretty well. I expect they will turn a corner at some point and start winning some of these close games and I think it is highly unlikely that they will finish with the 4 seed. Our team is way better than last year with way more upside. I expect we will end up with the 10-12 seed and the draft pick won't have that much value.

I just wish we had a freakin sf.

Wiggins in '14 would be huge for the team and the organization. Having a hometown player in Toronto would be huge for the fan base. And having the SF we need is perfect. I would trade any one of the players we have (minus JV and Lowry) to get Wiggins. Especially after the Bargs 2-19 showing last night. That was the 32768743687563487 straw!

I agree with this.

The team is playing fairly well. Derozan looks intent on establishing himself. JV is playing far more maturely than I thought he would (foul trouble). Klow is klow... plays with tenacity but makes some bad decisions when he wants to do it on his own. EdDav has actually contributed very well in limited minutes. Amir has been consistent Amir.

Jose goes on 9 minute pointelss steaks, Barges is not performing at the level he is expected to (offence or D). We have no wing man that is any threat to score, drive, change up on D and hound the other team.

This team simply lacks the talent to close out close games.

I frankly dont know if this team will turn a corner and win some of the close games. Againist SanAntonio - I doubt it. Against Detroit or Charlotte ? I frankly wouldnt bet on it.

This is way too early to say we are doomed.

Lets see what trade deadline presents. Jose (for certain) Ed Davis (sadly but likely) and perhaps even Bargnani with only 1 more year and 12 million left.

I dont expect the 2013 1st is a big deal...

Lets see what we get back in talent.
