Why would BC pick Tucker over T.O. native Dehnam Brown i think this waz a stupid idea..unless hes hoping hell still be there 56th...hopefully...
Denham Brown was just selected 40th overall to Seattle. I am guessing Colangelo took Tucker over Brown because he felt Tucker would be the better player for our team, fans would rather watch a winning team then a losing team with Canadians on it, I know I would. I don't care where the guys are from, as long as they win games.
Tucker is a forward which we have a ton of suddenly. I know that he might be a better player statistically but look at the team Denham Brown played on. 4 first rounders and he was rumored to go in the late 1st early 2nd as well. Too me they are a wash talent wise but Brown plays a position that we needed depth at. Even Bobby Jones or Hassan Adams would have been better in my mind. Perhaps even Diaz, that we could have kept or shipped to Miami to try and get Dorell Wright.
IMO..Tucker is better than Denham......and think about it..if Denham wasn't canadian...would u still think hes better than tucker?
atleast he still got drafted..unlike Mendez or English...so its not as bad
Yeah but you got to look at it his way. If you draft for holes you can never get rid of that piece ....or rarely...look what happened to Araujo. You can always take talented players and turn them into pieces b/c there's always a market for good talent. I feel another trade coming on soon that will solve some of the back court issues. Colangelo said he was working on something unrelated to the draft last night.
P.J Tucker is a steal. He averaged more points and rebounds than Aldridge. He is not a very good shooter but is a tremendous rebounder and for the Raptors, it wouldnt hurt to have a guy like that coming off the bench.
