i think toronto might take aldridge since he's the best bet at the 5 spot in the draft and can easily start next to bosh and villi in the toronto front court. braganani is more of a pf only despite his height, much like dirk.
bragnani to chicago. lots of potential and chicago's weakest position is PF. chicago already has good good young players at 1 2 and 3.
Do you think Aldridge would brag that he is number 1?
Think the best thing for the Raptors to do is just send Alvin Williams and #1 to Charlotte for #3 and B Knight. At least we more value since as of now, it appears the top 5-6 players of this draft are roughly the same in terms of talent, positives, and negatives. At # 3, we can still get AB, Morrison, Gay, or if we want to reach a bit, take Foye (Who I think will surprise a lot of people in a lesser way that Wade did to the 2003 draft). Would anyone trade MoPete for another top 10 pick? What pick can a Pape Sow and the 35th deal give back Toronto?

That's the best plan I've read on the board all week. Bobs should be done with Knight - since Felton has developed and KNight is too old to grow with the team. Char can get their choice of Thomas/Aldridge, one of which will be gone at 3 and Tor ca nstill get big dud Euro and their dream pg.
From a Raptor fan prospective, I don't think he is a bust, Kwame Brown level bust. He is just not a star most fans want him to be.
At the end, Lamarcus Aldridge is the real #1 player off that draft and Raptors probably knew it, but they opt not to pick him because he is too similar to Chris Bosh and they gambled off Bargs' potential.
