Default Gay Going No.1 (again)? Bargnani to the Bulls?

http://insider.espn.go.com/espn/blog...name=katz_andy

Quote:
League sources confirmed to ESPN.com that Toronto is considering Gay at No. 1. This would certainly shock the draft, since Gay has been considered a lock to drop over the past few weeks.

Sources close to the situation said Gay worked out exceptionally well in Toronto, had a clean medical report, has the prototype NBA body for a small forward, is an "outstanding individual" and is considered a "safe pick.''

Gay was the projected No. 1 pick in the preseason, but the perception is that Gay had a down year for the Huskies. However, Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun told ESPN.com last week he disagrees with that perception, especially when one considers the fact that Gay scored 15.2 points per game to lead a team that was loaded with scorers at similar positions.

According to league sources early Tuesday morning, Gay is considered now to be a top-five pick, with the two likely destinations being Toronto at No. 1 and Charlotte at No. 3.

The perception that Toronto must trade down to draft Bargnani also is taking a hit. League sources said the Raptors are now worried that they couldn't get a guarantee that Bargnani would be available for them below No. 2. League sources told ESPN.com that Chicago is seriously considering taking Bargnani -- or at least is putting that out there -- so if the Raptors want Bargnani, they may have to take him at No. 1.


so now we're full circle from last summer where once again Gay is projected to be the top pick? good lord these sports writers and GMs are so fickle

personally I think the Bargnani to Chicogo thing is a trick to keep Toronto from trading down, because Chi is worried that the new team picking #1 woul take the guy they want (tyrus or LaMarcus)

If Bargnani is the next Dirk TO would be crazy to pass him up. There's no prospect in this draft that wil be better than Dirk, who may even have some MVP awards before his career is over.

Going by nba comparisons? If we used your logic Adam Morrison the Larry Bird, Dirk would go first.

Not by NBA comparisons. Green's just saying no one in this draft will be better than Dirk Nowitzky.

sorry GoRapz, I think we were both typing ours at the same time, plus mine is about Chicago too, being that he suggests Chi is interested in Andrea now

Ok, so what does that have to do with taking Bargani over Gay?

You misunderstood me. I didn't say Bargnani is the next Dirk, I said "if Bargnani is the next Dirk," in reply to theGreatNumber8's post.

I will say one thing about TO picking Gay: at least he plays better Defense than most of the other lottery guys, and the Raps badly need help with their D

Ok, i dont read/acknowledge TheGreatDope08 so i overlooked his post you quoted. My bad.


But you said in the GoCrapz repeated topic Gay doesnt fit...so how would Bargani if both are gonna play the same position? Bargani is not a Center. Bosh is not a Center. Villy is not a Center.

I like Gay or Morrison...and drafting Joey Graham a season before doesnt change my mind because these 2 are better talents, have better potential/upside. And I'll gamble on it panning out then Graham turning into a all star caliber player.

That's true, but how does he fit in on the team when they already have Villanueva and Graham? Someone would have to go.

Bargnani is a tough fit as well, but he's 7 feet tall. If he can add another 20+ pounds to his present 225 he could have legit NBA center size.
