|Analysis: We had Bargnani atop our first mock draft on lottery night and we have left him there throughout this entire process, despite much disagreement from other quarters. Why? Because Toronto GM Bryan Colangelo isn't afraid to go against the grain, and no one in the NBA knows Bargnani better. This is a great pick for the Raptors. Bargnani is ready to contribute now and he can play three positions on the floor. He will allow the Raptors to go big and fast like Phoenix with Chris Bosh at the five, Bargnani at the four, and Charlie Villanueva at the three. Colangelo has the Raptors back on the winning track. It will be interesting to see what he does this summer with his cap room.|
