    I think they'll end up trading the pick if they get a decent offer.

    Colangelo is going to turn that franchise around quick. #1 pick, cap space and he'll probably work out a sign and trade w/ M. James for some team that fell in love with him this past season.

    Forum member nenerojer told me they should select the Italian guy. Says he is pretty good.

    I think they will trade it. Best case scenario, they get more picks, or trade down and find a big man with some skill (Arajuo has none).

    I think they trade the Pick and Mike James to Orlando for Darko and Arroyo, and Micro moves to America.

    LOL... well that should prevent Micro from adopting the Raps.

    If all else fails, I hope Collangelo trades the pick to New York. With both histories in mind with bad luck - at least I'll know for SURE that they'll get the short end of the stick.

    Marbury + future 1st Round Pick for 1st round pick!

    Aldridge. Closer to a finished product than Thomas, and he gives the Raps low-post offense. Bargnani is too much of a gamble at #1, and I doubt this draft class is good enough to fetch a decent trade offer. Some might say this would give the Raps too many bigs, but you can never have too many if they're good.
