TSN is reporting that Raptors GM Bryan Colangelo is saying the Raps will keep the No. 1 pick, and have narrowed it down to either Andrea Bargnani or LaMarcus Aldridge: TSN.ca

Colangelo admits he's fielded numerous calls about the pick since the Raptors won the draft lottery, but none has really grabbed him. To trade the pick outright for a player, Colangelo wanted someone of all-star calibre in return. To trade down a few spots in the draft, he wanted to get back a young player with decent potential thrown into the deal.

"There have been quite a few inquiries about the pick, nothing we felt was enough to change our course and use the selection," Colangelo said. "The offers that we received were not in the calibre that we felt it required to move the pick."

Still, the former Phoenix Suns GM has shown he's not shy when it comes to the high-stakes game of NBA trading and plenty can happen in the final hours before the draft at New York's Madison Square Garden.

"If someone came forward with something now that would knock us down and make us rethink the position, yeah, there's that chance (of trading the pick), there's time before the draft," said Colangelo. "But at the end of the day, we are sitting with No. 1."

Colangelo also made calls about acquiring another first-round pick, but nothing came to fruition.

"Are we still interested in acquiring another pick? Yes. Are there options right now? No. There's been some interesting and unique offers, players thrown at us. But we've gone through and systematically eliminated most of those opportunities," said Colangelo.

"But there is a lot of stuff flying around right now."

Here's hopping the Raps, can trade that pick to the Bobcats, in exchange for #3 and Knight, and then still pick up their guy (Assuming Chicago takes Thomas).

The raptors are considereing Aldridge because Chris Bosh works out with him all the time.

But Colangelo I think has convinced Bosh that Bargnani is their man. Rasho can play D and on the other end Bargnani can shoot very well.

That's what Ric Bucher said

I hope Adam Morrison slips to 21st.

Jerry West has been working the past 48 hours on a "very big deal" to try and get up to the number 3(Charlotte) or 6(Portland) spot to try and get Adam Morrison.

Apparently he is dangling Shane Battier.

Thats what the insiders at espn are telling me

I sure hope thats not it. As much as I want Morrison to go to Memphis it seems like a lousy deal.
