    Colangelo speaks on previous draft mistakes

    Obviously he is not going to name anyone on current roster though.
    During a Q&A discussing how teams prepare for the draft, Kevin McGran of the Toronto Star asked Toronto Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo who he would pick as his worst selection.

    "I had a draft selection in Phoenix, No. 22 [in 2002]. I picked a kid named Casey Jacobsen from Stanford and Tayshaun Prince went 23rd. I missed because we had Shawn Marion and felt Prince was more or less a duplication. But I made it up by taking Amar'e Stoudemire at No 9. And then a kid Paul Millsap went 47th [in 2006]. And at 35, we took P.J. Tucker. That was a mistake."

    Ironically, Tucker currently plays for the Suns and he's part of their rotation this season.

    Colangelo has been in charge of the Raptors since 2006 and his first round picks include Andrea Bargnani, DeMar DeRozan, Ed Davis, Jonas Valanciunas and Terrence Ross. Those five players are still with the Raptors.

    This was the most interesting part. Talking about Drummond.

    Picking eighth, I passed on somebody I consider a top-five talent in the draft because we felt like he didn’t have the right mental makeup. I passed on someone we thought was a top-three physical specimen because we felt he wasn’t the right fit for our team and didn’t have the right mental makeup.

    he passed on drummond simply because we have a longjam at the 4 and drafted big val the year before. Im no scout, nor did I even watch much NCAA, but drummon was a legit talent, you couldnt pass him on even if you had depht at your frountcourt. I would've rather seen drummond rot on the bench than terrance ross. BC ****ED UP .

    wasnt that bad..... brandon roy got hurt so turns out he wasnt a great pick.. aldridge would have been better but thats about it.. and there was no way we could have known about rajon rondo.. ruday gay aswell but it wasnt a brutal pick.. that was a terrible draft class and at least we werent the ones who drafted adam morrision .. only 3 people in that draft have ever been an all star not including rondo andrea was probably the 2nd or 3rd best pick in that draft...

    Rondo (but cant blame him there)
    Aldridge
    Gay
    Andrea

    .

    not the worst career stats

    .439 1.4 3.7 .365 2.8 3.4 .825 0.9 4.0 4.9 1.3 0.4 0.9 1.7 2.7 15.4

    but hey, it was a number 1. I would forgive if we were the 4th or 5th.

    There were 3 people that were considered #1 picks that draft.

    LaMarcus Aldridge, Adam Morrison, and Andrea Bargnani.

    Tell me where he made the mistake.

    He didn't pick Aldridge because he's redundant to Bosh. He didn't pick Morrison because BC wasn't sold on him.


    Without hindsight, it was a good pick.

    With his recent stupid move of blocking the Knicks in acquiring Nash by signing Fields, it would be interesting to know how other GMs perceived him as a trading partner.

    That's the thing I don't like about BC. He always picks the best that fits the team, but in the long run it became intangible. Aside from that draft class, this yr we could of get drummond but we picked ross.

    I'd rather we pick a player with better potential, that way it benefits the team going forward with better trade asset. Its better for a rebuilding team.

    Believe it or not, Bargnani was thought of to probably have the better career over Aldridge ATM. So he picked the BPA from what the majority were saying ATM.
