The picks from 14 to 19 immediately above the Raptors are :
Moving into the top 10 requires a real stretch of imagination given depth and teams in those spots.
The only team I could sense the Raptors could deal with are Suns. I dont think Bulls Hawks or Celtics would make a deal with MU unless it involved a big contract we dont want... Rondo (1 year) and a couple of 4's no body wants.
Kings looking to deal at 8 but I doubt we have a player they'd want that we'd be willing to part with.
Maybe something using the 20th and Amir as main pieces for the 8th and Reggie Evans(probably also have to take back a shit player like Outlaw to make things work).
Patterson slides in PF for Amir and Reggie brings an attitude and veteran rebounding presence to the bench.
But I'm not sure I'd want the 8th spot. To me that's where a run on PF's start but most of them IMO aren't good fits for us or have the type PF game that doesn't usually translate well from college to the pros.
The Raptors not specifically mentioned - only that Chicago and the coaching wont start two rookies at this talent level... i.e. it seems a waste.
Further that 16/19 are not enought to garner a top 3 pick and not enough to garner a Love trade.
That leaves Chicago looking for a package of vetern talent and perhaps trading down.
Given the loss of Deng and his contract - Novak seems like a perfect fit for the Bulls and their lack of scoring punch. I would not be surprised if Novak / Bucyk or De Colo and perhaps a swap of picks 16 - 20 emerges as a strong potental move if the Raptors "have their guy staked out at i.e. 16"
