Default Best/Worst Raptor GM Moves

What moves (trade, draft, free agency) do you think were the best and worst in the history of the franchise?

Bosh
Villy

Two other bad picks were Michael Bradley in 2001 and Chris Jeffries in 2002 (I think those were the years)

Yeah I forgot about that trade, still though, turned out to be a horrible trade. And it was the Raptors still who asked the Lakers to pick Jeffries for them, another bad move. Bad draft night all around.

Whoa whoa whoa....you need to look at this situation. T-Mac didn't want to be in Toronto and wanted to see how is talent would stem if he played in another organization.

Mike James might seem like a great player....but that is mostly on paper. He had his moments, yes. But his mentality towards the game and his poor shots when it came to the end of games was sad. He drained about 55% of those shots...but he also took 95% of those shots. Mike James is replaceable.

Damon Stoudamire, they had really no choice...

Camby was injury prone and his contract was hefty...

The best move out of all the GM's was getting rid of Hoffa.

The raps previous GMs have so many bad moves it is difficult to pick one. How about Antonio Davis to a max deal? $14Million!!!! Huge deals for Alvin and JYD? Anyone remember Alex Radoyavic? (not sure spelling)....12th overall. Same draft we took Bender at 5th and dealt him for Antonio Davis. Hoffa is the worst pick ever for our team. I would also say that Camby at #2 was horrible. You don't want to look at who was picked after him.
